Lisa Guilbeau, the Social Studies department chair and a veteran teacher at Greenbrier is Greenbrier High School’s Teacher of the Year, and is now a finalist at the county level.

Guilbeau is one of five finalist at the county level, alongside one other high school teacher and three elementary school teachers. In order to become Teacher of the Year, teachers are required to have vast knowledge in one’s content area, implement creative and engaging lesson plans in the classroom, play an active role in the school and community, and maintain mutual respect with peers and the students they teach.

Mrs. Guilbeau is a respected teacher and is beloved by the many students she has taught over her 26 year career in education. As Mrs. Guilbeau states, “Kids don’t learn from people they don’t like. So you have to make a human connection and establish a relationship [with your student]. From then on, learning happens.”

Guilbeau expressed her excitement to be a county finalist and describes the entire process as “very humbling.” This is the second time in Mrs. Guilbeau’s career she has won Teacher of the Year, with the first being in 1999, when she was a teacher at Harlem High School.

Her former student and god-daughter Madison Drummond, a senior at Greenbrier, says, “[Guilbeau] is one of those teachers everyone wants to have- she’s dedicated to her students and truly loves what she does.”
