Ann PhilpottFrenship ISD the City of Wolfforth extend congratulations to Ann Philpott, reading intervention teacher at Frenship Middle School, for her selection as the Wolfforth Area Chamber of Commerce 2016 Teacher of the Year. Philpott accepted the award from Terri Robinette, Wolfforth Director of Marketing and Business Development, Monday night during the Chamber’s annual banquet.

Philpott is in her seventh year at Frenship Middle School teaching Dyslexia reading and READ 180. She has 27 years of teaching experience.

“Ann Philpott requests to be right on the front lines teaching our neediest and most challenging students how to read,” Robinette read from a nomination letter written by FMS Principal Jerry Jerabek. “She is a miracle worker who takes FMS students who are years below grade level and makes no excuses as she helps them overcome the challenges of weak backgrounds, poor home lives, learning disabilities, dyslexia and anything else that can derail a student’s reading skills and builds them into successful readers and students.”
