Meet Hickory's Emerging Leader in Education

Meet Hickory's Emerging Leader in Education

Last year, she was selected by her peers as Hickory Elementary School's Teacher of the Year, and the recognition keeps coming for 2nd Grade Teacher Bailey Gibson.

The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) recently selected Mrs. Gibson as an Emerging Leader in Education. 

Hickory Elementary Assistant Principal Tonya Moody says, "She is an amazing teacher leader at Hickory. She is extremely deserving of this award! She truly is an emerging leader in education, and I cannot wait to see what she will accomplish in her career."

"Your efforts in the classroom have not gone unnoticed," writes IDOE Senior Director of Educator Talent Dr. Rebecca Estes. "A member of your school's leadership team feels you deserve to be recognized, and so do we!"

Educational leadership runs deep in Mrs. Gibson. Her mother, Melinda Smith, is an Assistant Principal at Avon Middle School South.

Congratulations, Mrs. Gibson!
