"She's a good teacher all around," Jackson said. "She rewards us if we do well."

Ask questions

Medlock advises new teachers to ask questions of their experienced peers.

"Don't wait until it's too late," she said. "Find a mentor in your grade level and ask lots of questions."

Medlock said she was "very humbled" to discover she had been selected by her peers as Walker's Teacher of the Year.

"There are some teachers on this staff that I look up to tremendously, and to think they think highly of me is really touching," she said.

"It's also a sense of validation when you work so hard," she said. "You can be a good wife and a good mother but when you're recognized by your peers, it's a really good feeling."
