Fulton Learning Center (FLC) fourth grade English, reading, and social studies teacher Laura Groseclose was recently named the 2019 Education Service Center’s (ESC) Region 2 Teacher of the Year. A ceremony for Groseclose was held to commemorate her achievement Friday, Aug. 9 at FLC.

When Groseclose first heard the news from Aransas County Independent School District Superintendent Joey Patek, she didn’t believe it at first.

“I was in disbelief,” said Groseclose. “I mean, what an honor this is, to be chosen.”

Groseclose was chosen as the best amongst the more than 40 school districts in Region Two of the ESC.

She earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Miami University in Oxford, OH, and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi.

At the ceremony, she was joined alongside her family, peers, and ESC representatives.

“It was great to celebrate with my Fulton family,” said Groseclose. “I work with wonderful people who are hard working and compassionate and to have them here celebrating with me was wonderful.”

She will begin her 32nd year of teaching at the ACISD this upcoming school year. She is also known as the “Fulton Paparazzi;” taking photos of everyone for the schools’ yearbook.
