Robin Mehler Named Beginning Teacher of the Year State Runner-Up

Congratulations are most certainly due to Lucy S. Herring Elementary’s Mrs. Robin Mehler!
During the April 15th NCCAT-The North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching-Prudential Beginning Teacher of the Year Award Ceremony, our very own fourth/fifth-grade teacher was named as the 2021 state runner-up.
The NCCAT Beginning Teacher of the Year process was developed to honor and retain new teaching professionals who show promise as excellent educational leaders.
Mrs. Mehler - who is currently in her second year of teaching - was chosen as Asheville City Schools’ Beginning Teacher of the Year this past September. In December, she was named as one of just 27 Beginning Teachers of the Year finalists from across the state.
As the state’s runner-up, Mrs. Mehler will receive a $2,000 cash prize.
