    Deion Jamison on Being the 2023 SC Teacher of the Year

    Deion Jamison is a 9th and 10th grade English Language Arts teacher at Legacy Early College in Greenville, SC, and the district teacher of the year for the South Carolina Public Charter School District. He earned his undergraduate degree in Sociology from Clemson University in 2017 and a Master of Science in Education from Johns Hopkins University in 2021. Jamison became interested in teaching as a child, but the career was solidified after recognizing the disparities in education in South Carolina between districts. As a Bill & Melinda Gates Millennium Scholar and product of Orangeburg County Schools, he ascribes to the proverb “to whom much is given, much is required,” further influencing his decision to teach. Jamison believes that education is liberation and teaches his students skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving to address the world’s most pressing issues. Jamison’s work has been recognized nationally through the National Council of Teachers of English and Teach for America as an Early Career Educator of Color Leadership Award recipient and the recipient of the Sue Lehmann Excellence in Teacher Leadership Award. Aside from accolades, Jamison is most proud of creating brave, inclusive spaces for culturally and linguistically diverse students to thrive, and sharing those practices with colleagues within his school, the state, and nation t promote equity in education.
