ORANGE PARK – The Florida Council for Social Studies selected Clay County’s Tiffany Calderon from Ridgeview High as the 2022 Warren Tracy Beginning Teacher of the Year. The award, presented by FCSS, recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of social studies teachers who are in their first three years of the field of education.
Tiffany Calderon is a U.S. History teacher who began her career in October 2021 at Ridgeview High. Calderon is known by her colleagues as an innovative and energetic teacher that brings history alive to her students every day.
“History is full of adventures about the past, present, and future,” Calderon said. “It is my duty to make sure the subject is brought to life and that impactful connections are made across generations.”
“As a former history teacher and believer in strong history programs to engage our students in civic mindfulness, I am excited to celebrate Tiffany Calderon in this statewide achievement. Ms. Calderon embodies the professionalism, creativity, and excitement for teaching that is needed to inspire our Clay County students to be well-rounded citizens when they graduate high school,” said Superintendent of Schools David Broskie.
As the award recipient, Calderon will receive a cash reward for professional development and attend the FCSS annual conference. In October, Calderon will travel to Orlando to receive the award at the Awards Banquet with other Florida Social Studies teachers.
