Barren Co. Schools teacher chosen for statewide Innovative Teacher Cohort

BARREN CO., Ky.- A Barren County Elementary School teacher has received statewide recognition. 

Tina Sharp, a ‘STREAM’ teacher at North Jackson Elementary, has been selected by the Kentucky Department of Education for the Kentucky Innovative Learning Network’s Innovative Teacher Cohort. 

She is one of 11 teachers chosen to participate. 

The opportunity will guide the teachers through professional learning, teacher leadership events, and project development for students. 

“I love any opportunity I can get to bring new things back to my school. I’m really focusing on the community aspect because I know what an advantage it is to the kids to bring in those rural world examples,” said Sharp. 

This is a pilot cohort, meaning it’s the first time teachers have been chosen for the experience.
