Ms. Debbie Slack, a teacher at Morgan County Schools has been nominated for the Hannah E. (Liz) MacGregor Teacher of the Year History Teacher Award. The MacGregor Teacher of the Year award is sponsored by James F. Harris in honor of his sister, and is awarded to one middle and one high school teacher annually. Each of the 57 National History Day affiliates (states and US territories) may nominate one middle and high school teacher each for this award. Ms. Slack is the junior division nominee from Tennessee. As the nominee, Ms. Slack was selected from among teachers participating in History Day as the 2019 Tennessee Educator of the Year. Ms. Slack has coached numerous Morgan County students who have won regional and state awards in competition. This year, Hayden Harvey and Carter Lowe of Coalfield School won an award for their extensive use of primary sources on their project about the 2002 tornado that struck Morgan County. The two $5,000 MacGregor awards will be presented to outstanding teachers who demonstrate a commitment to engaging students in historical learning through innovative use of primary sources, implementation of active learning strategies to foster historical thinking skills, and participation in the National History Day contest. The two national winners will be announced on #NationalHistoryDay, June 13, 2019.
