Bulloch Academy first grade teacher Eileen Rice was recently named the school’s 2007-2008 Teacher of the Year. Rice’s husband, George, and son, Nathan, made a surprise appearance at the May faculty meeting where headmaster Dr. Brenda Shuman-Riley made the announcement.

Rice is in her fifth year at Bulloch Academy and her 15th year in education.

The honor is the second in her career. She was named the TOTY of Springfield Central Elementary School in 1998.
