Lake's Teacher of the Year wins 'Magic of Teaching Award'


Macy’s presented the Magic of Teaching Award to Andrea Vineyard, a special education teacher at Tavares High School, on Thursday July 14, 2016, during the Macy’s Florida State Teacher of the Year Banquet held at The Hard Rock Live at Universal Studios in Orlando.
Ms. Vineyard was named Lake County's teacher of the year in 2016.  
Macy’s has created a very special way to recognize Florida's top educators that provides them with tangible rewards and memories to last a lifetime. Each District Teacher of the Year receives a cash award of $750, and $250 for their respective schools, funded by Macy’s. Also, Macy’s will surprise three District Teachers of the Year with a $1,000 Macy’s gift card and these special awards: the Magic of Leadership award for a teacher who leads by example; the Magic of Teaching award for a teacher who goes beyond the basic job description to continue positive growth in her students; and the Magic of Giving award to a teacher with a unique ability to create positive change in the community.
