Congratulations to Angie Freeman, District Teacher of the Year

Lexington County School District One proudly named Angela B. Freeman its District Teacher of the Year at the annual Teacher of the Year Celebration honoring outstanding teachers who exemplify a commitment and dedication to educating students. Freeman now goes on to compete in the state-level Teacher of the Year program next year.

The special family-themed celebration took place Tuesday, April 6, 2017, at 7 p.m. at the Lexington One Performing Arts Center at Lexington High School.

Although Angie Freeman never intended to teach, the powerful pull of family led her there. After her graduation from college, she planned to continue, get a master’s degree and work in business or industry. Days before she planned to leave for Oklahoma State University to earn that next degree, however, her father became ill.

She put family first, stayed home and took a teaching job for “only a year.” Thirty-one years and countless student successes later, she is still teaching.

A veteran Lexington County public educator, Freeman believes in the importance of family. She works to make her classroom a non-threatening environment where students receive opportunities to succeed, to be creative, to express opinions, to ask questions — all while receiving constant encouragement.

After earning her Bachelor of Arts in mathematics from Winthrop University, she joined Airport High School in Lexington School District Two as a mathematics teacher. She worked there for 13 years before joining Lexington High School, where she teaches AP Calculus BC, Calculus Theory and Algebra 2 for all grade levels.

Freeman earned a Master of Mathematics and her master’s plus 30 from the University of South Carolina and certifications in secondary mathematics, AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC.

She is a member of the S.C. Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Lexington District One’s Student Learning Objective Committee and district curriculum writing committees.
