Gulf Breeze teacher named Rookie of the Year

The Santa Rosa Education Foundation announced Elizabeth Fitzgerald, a third grade teacher at Gulf Breeze Elementary School, as the 2015 Santa Rosa Rookie of the Year at a reception Wednesday afternoon.

She was selected from a field of 33 educators with three or less years of teaching experience who were honored at the event. The Gulf Breeze Area Chamber of Commerce presented Elizabeth with a $500 Sara Caudell Scholarship.

“Elizabeth’s ability to motivate students and fellow educators, her active involvement with parent volunteers, and her eagerness to pursuit new learning and new ideas and to share them with our staff and students make her an excellent representative of Santa Rosa County Rookies,” Gulf Breeze Elementary Principal Warren Stevens said.
