Kimberly Bliley, special education teacher at Midlothian Middle School, has been selected as one of eight educators statewide to receive the 2012 Virginia Lottery Super Teacher Award.

Kimberly Bliley was awarded today in a surprise presentation at the school in front of students, faculty and special guests. The award, sponsored by the Virginia Lottery, the Virginia PTA and Virginia-based The Supply Room Companies, consists of a cash prize of ,000 and an additional ,000 classroom credit from The Supply Room Companies. In addition to the wonderful classroom supplies and cash prizes, this year, all eight winning Super Teacher schools will receive a dynamic Science Museum of Virginia educational experience to be fulfilled during the 2012-2013 school year!

The Lottery received nearly 1,200 Super Teacher nominations statewide and more than 160 in this area of the state. Kimberly Bliley is the 6th of eight public school teachers to receive the Super Teacher Award for 2012. Two more surprise presentations will occur this spring, and each winner represents one of eight geographic regions of the state.

Stephanie K. Gerber, parent of student, nominated Bliley because she “supports and encourages students and never rests until they experience the pleasures and joys of success through academic and personal growth.” In her nomination essay, Gerber also praises her creativity and innovation. She wrote, “Passionate about what her students’ find exciting, she lifts them up and leads them on adventures where weak hearts or deformities cannot prevent them from going.”
