Saegert educator among Seguin ISD Teacher of the Year nominees
...It is easy to understand why Saegert Sixth Grade Center's Carolyn Freeman is a nominee for Seguin ISD Teacher of the Year.She
has an extensive background in teaching, having taught at high school, middle school and elementary school levels.Carolyn
has taught physical education, health and special education and coached volleyball, basketball, track and field and boys' and girls' cross country throughout the years. She is an exceptional person and educator who knows why she initially became involved in education and remained in her chosen field for 26 years.Carolyn
is yet another of the Teacher of the Year nominees who could probably be making more money in the business world, but she
decided a long time ago that she
wanted to be a teacher and would not be happy doing anything else.Like many of us, she
had one special teacher in her
life that impressed her
so much that she
aspired to be just like her
.And now she
is!Without a doubt, there are countless students who look at Carolyn as a positive role model in their lives. Carolyn attended college at Texas A&M University where she obtained her bachelor of science degree in physical education and health.She later attended Texas State University where she received her master of education
in special education.Carolyn
is happy with her
life in teaching, but does admit her
second choice would have been in the fashion industry.She
has had an interest in fashion and design since she
was a girl, but the desire to help others won out over the chance to be rich and famous.There are a lot of students in the Seguin Independent School District
who are glad Carolyn
chose education because she
has made such a positive difference in their lives.
