Lord Botetourt teacher named Red Cross Education Hero

Posted: Updated:
The American Red Cross and WSLS 10 team up for our celebration of heroes.

We want to introduce you to this year's education hero, Julie Conner, a teacher and volleyball coach at Lord Botetourt High School.

Along with coaching, Julie teaches personal finance.

It's a class, now required to graduate, that sets students up for a successful future.

Julie has done such a great job teaching the personal finance class back in September she earned the prestigious Gold Star Teacher Award after her class took Financial Literacy Certification Test and more than 90-percent of them passed.

“Every day is different, every class is different, you encounter a lot of different students, different personalities and it's just fun,” Conner explained.

For her coaching came first and the volleyball lead her from the gym to the classroom.
