Putnam County Teacher of the Year Ceremony & Classroom Visit with Putnam County Teacher of the Year, Bobbi Okesson


One step into Bobbi Okesson’s classroom and you can see and feel how different her class really is. In addition to the bright green and purple walls, students are free to sit on exercise balls, stationary bikes, traditional chairs, or stand at taller tables while using a whiteboard marker to write on the surface of their desks. After sitting through one math lesson in Mrs. Okesson’s class, it’s clear to see why she was selected as Putnam County’s Teacher of the Year, a title she passed on later that night to Timothy Stevens of Ochwilla Elementary School.
