Clay teachers earn Governor’s Shine Awards

TALLAHASSEE – Two Clay County teachers are among 18 educators from across Florida who received the Governor’s Shine Award on Tuesday.

During a Nov. 7 meeting of the Florida Cabinet, Gov. Rick Scott recognized teachers and administrators who make significant contributions to the field of education. In recognition of Veterans Day, 15 of the educators honored were veterans and are now teaching in Florida public schools.

The two Clay County teachers who were honored are both Clay County Teacher of the year winners. Twn-year teaching veteran Michelle Bily, now a teacher at Doctors Inlet Elementary, was the Clay County School District’s 2018 Teacher of the Year when she taught at Lakeside Elementary.

The second Shine Award recipient was Jessica Ehlinger, a 12-year-veteran and 2017 Clay County Teacher of the Year. Ehlinger currently teaches gifted education at Ridgeview Elementary School and is a Florida Techer LEAD Network alumnus and a two-time Fishman Prize nominee.

“I am proud to present these outstanding educators with the Governor’s Shine Award today. I would like to thank them for their service to our country and for their commitment to ensuring all students reach their full potential. The educators honored today represent Florida’s extraordinary teaching staff who are dedicated to preparing students for success in college and career,” Scott said.
