“It is a great honor to be recognized for the work that I have done so far and to be selected for such an amazing award” Charles Morrison says. “I am excited to continue my journey in education and better serve my students now and in the future.”

Morrison has been a teacher at East Lee County High School for three years. He teaches U.S. History and African American History.

He is an outstanding asset to our school. Mr. Morrison is always looking for new ways to engage his students and create a spark for their appreciation for learning. This is a well-deserved recognition.”

The Florida Council for Social Studies says it salutes Morrison’s “inspiration and dedication to teaching the youth of Florida” and notes this year’s winners are “highly skilled and adept at creating meaningful lessons for their students and advocating for social studies education.”
