PRINCETON - A woman with 36 years of teaching experience in Mercer County is named the county’s Teacher of the Year.

Susan French was honored by the county at a banquet Thursday evening at the Princeton Church of God. She was selected by the committee as a finalist but learned of her award that night.

French teaches sixth grade at Montcalm Elementary School. She said she runs her classroom like a company, where teachers are the employers, the children are the employees and the product is learning.

French and her co-teacher lead students to get the highest Westest2 scores in the county. French has taught 1,700 students over the years and is now teaching children and grandchildren of former students.
