Wiregrass area elementary school teachers got to hear from Alabama's Teacher of the Year today at a teacher workshop.
Phil Rodney Wilson, an elementary school teacher from Auburn, spoke to teachers from Jerry Lee Faine and Grandview.
Both schools are recipients of a grant funded through the Wiregrass Foundation's Faces Initiative.
He talked about incorporating the arts into everyday lessons that are taught in the classroom.
The workshop is being held all week on Troy University's Dothan Campus.
