Almost everyone can name a special teacher they may have had as a child. At The College of Saint Rose, we have a long history of producing educators who go on to inspire students throughout their lives.

Schools in South Carolina hired two of those types of Saint Rose graduates. Shannon Peterson ’06 G’12 and Tiffany Smith ’04 G’05 were named Teacher of the Year in their school districts recently and went on to be honored during the South Carolina Teacher of the Year banquet.

We caught up with both of them here.
