Fayette selects Ethington as Outstanding Special Educator
Amber Ethington of Garrett Morgan Elementary is Fayette County’s Outstanding Special Educator for 2020. The Central Kentucky Educational Cooperative, which canceled its spring awards luncheon amid COVID-19 restrictions, recognized the recipients online in June.
Ethington has taught students with moderate/severe disabilities for six years, including two years previously at Julius Marks Elementary. “My goal for exceptional children is that they will live in a more inclusive world where they are pushed to their potential and achieve the unimaginable. These children can do anything as long as they are believed in,” she said.
A native of Versailles, Ethington attended the University of Kentucky where she earned a B.S. in Special Education MSD and a master’s degree in Special Education Teacher Leadership with an Autism Certificate. She is working on her certification as a board-certified behavior analyst.
