(l-r) Dr. Viola Johnson applauds Lori Wilson as she receives the January Skyline Teacher of the Month for Winton Woods City Schools.

Winton Woods Intermediate School Principal Jeremy Day selected Lori Wilson for January’s Skyline Teacher of the Month. “Mrs. Wilson has always shown some of the best academic results in our fifth-grade reading department and is now serving as our fifth grade reading department head,” said Day. “She plays a major role on our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) team and has led a number of professional development sessions on restorative practices this year for our staff.”


Day praised Wilsons’ abilities as a teacher and instructional leader among her peers. “She has attended a number of New Tech Network conferences and leadership summits and uses them as a resource to enhance her classroom and to become a teacher leader within our building. Mrs. Wilson has also been serving as a building representative for the past two years. She is continuously building a positive culture for our students and staff. Her teaching style is very consistent and nurturing in her classroom. I would have my own two kids in her classroom without question.”
