WINNSBORO – Crystal Whitaker, a history teacher at Fairfield Central High School and member of the Fairfield County Education Association, was recently featured in the South Carolina Education Association’s publication, SCEA Voice.

Whitaker, the publication stated, has made extra efforts throughout the school year to reach out to her students and ensure their wellbeing.

“Weekly calls, anonymous surveys, and check-ins have allowed her to warrant her students’ success through the past school year,” the feature stated.

Whitaker was quoted as saying that, next year, she looks forward to receiving high-fives at her door again, dressing up in her costumes coordinated with each history unit, and watching peers interact with one another and their teachers.

Whitaker said she believes that the future lies in the hands of her students and is committed to providing them with the resources that they need to leave school as compassionate and engaged members of the community.

“I’m proud of them” Whitaker said. “I am an educator because I know the future lies in the hands of the children.”
