Mission: The purpose of the Kershaw County Teacher Forum is to give recognition to school teachers of the year, to develop teacher leadership among this outstanding group, to give the teachers a voice in educational issues that face teachers today at all levels, and to impact the professional development of other teachers by encouraging its members to facilitate the development of leadership skills among their peers.
The Kershaw County Teacher Forum was established in 1999 as part of a mission to develop and utilize teacher leadership. The Forum offers outstanding teachers from across the district experiences in professional development; discussions on national, state, and local educational issues; and dialogue with key leaders about a variety of topics affecting the educational system.
The Kershaw County Teacher Forum is a voluntary, non-partisan organization unaffiliated with any other teacher organization. Membership in the Forum will grow as new Teachers of the Year are added annually.
