January 21, 2021 (North Bethesda M.D.) Fitzgerald Hyundai Rockville joins Montgomery County Public School (MCPS) in honoring and recognizing Ms. Inge Chichester as the Teacher of the Year. Chichester is the World Studies content specialist at Sligo Middle School and a 19-year veteran of MCPS, who will now go on to compete for Maryland Teacher of the Year.
Chichester was one of three finalists for Teacher of the Year, selected by The Marian Greenblatt Education Fund, along with Annie Moore, kindergarten teacher at Farmland Elementary School, and Rodney Van Tassell, social studies resource teacher at Winston Churchill High School “We are always proud to recognize the best teachers in Montgomery County,” said Dottie Fitzgerald, of Fitzgerald Auto Malls. “They create the foundation for students who become our future customers and associates. And Ms. Chichester brings out the best in her students, we need more of her positive enthusiasm!”
MCPS highlighted how students, parents and colleagues refer to her as a superstar and during her nomination it was noted that “Chichester expects greatness from her students and is a fierce advocate for them. She supports them and holds them accountable. She listens to them and has a special ability to make them see and believe in their own growth and capabilities.”
For more than twenty years Fitzgerald Auto Mall has been part of recognizing the MCPS Teacher of the Year. All of the Teacher of the Year finalists received $2,000 from the Greenblatt Educational Fund. Ms. Chichester will also receive a cash prize from the MCPS Educational Foundation and the complementary lease and use of a new Hyundai Sonata from Fitzgerald Auto Malls.
