Wednesday, February 23, 2022

Heathwood's Early Childhood and Lower School Science Teacher, Dr. Jamie Browder, has been named the 2022 SC Conservation Teacher of the Year by the SC Association of Conservation Districts. Dr. Browder earned the award for his extensive work in school gardening and youth environmental education, which are very much in evidence at Heathwood, where he has been working with students of all ages to further develop our edible forest, study plant life, and enhance our greenhouse.

"We are so proud to have Dr. Jamie Browder as a member of our Early Childhood and Lower School faculty," said Head of Early Childhood and Lower School Stephanie Scanlon. "His hands-on approach to teaching science and his commitment to environmental stewardship fit so perfectly with our educational values. We are thrilled to see his talents recognized at the state level with this award."
