A Walters State Community College faculty member has been named Science Teacher of the year by a statewide organization.
The Tennessee Science Teachers Association named Kelly Moore-Roberts, assistant professor of biology, as the Higher Education Teacher of the Year. This prestigious award recognizes her academic success and her community and campus involvement. 
Moore-Roberts was nominated for the award in the fall. Following the nomination, she completed an application and provided her teaching philosophy.

Moore-Roberts’ campus and community activities include mentoring new adjunct faculty members and hosting science presentations for elementary and middle school students visiting the college campus. 
“Kelly is a tremendous asset to the Natural Science Division,” said Dr. Matthew Smith, associate professor of chemistry and interim dean of natural sciences.
“She is passionate about what she does. She brings innovative teaching methods into her classroom. Kelly cares about her students and does everything possible to prepare them for future success.”
Moore-Roberts joined the faculty of Walters State in 2015. She is also an alumna of the college.
