Brooke Autrey is Riversprings Middle School’s November Teacher of the Month. Autrey grew up attending Wakulla County Schools and completed her practicum and internship at Crawfordville Elementary School before becoming a first-grade teacher at Shadeville Elementary School.
Since 2019, Autrey has been a sixth-grade teacher with the Riversprings Bears. Autrey said, “I am at the point in my career where my first few years of students are graduating high school and working in the community.” She went on to say, “It is such a joy to see my former students succeed and watch them pursue their goals. When students stop by at open house and school events to visit or write letters after being in my class, it means the world to me and helps me to know that I was a positive influence in their lives. I hope that all my students know how much I believe in them and how thankful I am to have been one of their teachers.”
Principal Joshua Sandgren said the following of Autrey, “Words cannot express the appreciation we have at RMS for Mrs. Autrey. Her attention to detail, work ethic, and love for her students does not go unnoticed. Thank you for all you do for the students and staff at RMS. Great job and go bears!”
