Webb-Lewis Named Teacher of Year
Tessa Webb-Lewis, an eighth-grade math teacher at Henderson Middle School, was named as the Vance County Schools’ Teacher of the
Year for 2009-2010 on September 10 at the school system’s annual Teacher of the Year Banquet. The banquet was held in the cafeteria of
Southern Vance High School.
Webb-Lewis, who has been teaching at Henderson Middle for the last eight years, was selected from an outstanding ﬁeld of educators
as the local Teacher of the Year. She will now go on to represent her colleagues in
regional and state competition for the North Carolina Teacher of the Year.
Her selection marks the third consecutive year, and the fourth time out of
the last ﬁve years, that the Teacher of the Year has been a member of the faculty
at Henderson Middle School. The last six recipients of the district’s Teacher of the
Year award have been middle school teachers.
Webb-Lewis has always been a highly respected member of Henderson
Middle’s faculty during her teaching career. Henderson Middle School is the only
school in which she has ever taught. Eight years ago, Webb-Lewis decided to
become a teacher after a lengthy and successful career in the corporate world. As a
math teacher, Webb-Lewis’ students have consistently each year had some of the
highest scores and academic achievements in the county. For the last two school
years, Webb-Lewis had a student who made a perfect score, ﬁrst on the seventh- Tessa Webb-Lewis holds the Vance County Schools’
grade state end-of-grade test, and then on the eighth-grade Algebra I state end-of- Teacher of the Year plaque for the 2009-2010 school year

Teacher of the Year honor. Following the interviews, three ﬁnalists were selected
and committee members then visited with them and their students in their classrooms.
In addition to Webb-Lewis, the ﬁnalists were Sharon Hopper of Zeb Vance, as the ﬁrst runner up, and Iris Ioyoda-Lacson of Clark Street,
as the second runner up.
In accepting her award, Webb-Lewis told an audience of approximately 150 people, “This has been a journey. It was eight years ago that
I decided I wanted to teach. When I got the job at Henderson Middle, my co-workers in the corporate oﬃce where I had been working asked
me why I wanted to leave. I told them I wanted to teach. I had a calling to teach. I also wanted to have a greater role in the education of my
own children. I believe in what I am doing. My students are so responsive and dedicated. It is because of those dedicated students that I’m
standing here as the Teacher of the Year. It is also because of my students’ parents, because they want what is best for their children.”
As the Vance County Schools’ Teacher of the Year, Webb-Lewis was presented with a $1,000 check from the school system, a $500 check
from the Vance County Public School Foundation and a $500 check from Walmart. She also received gifts from several local businesses includ-
ing The Silo, Golden Skillet, Bojangles, Bullock’s of Henderson, Betty B’s, Interiors & Gifts Too, Friendly Florist, Cracker Barrel and New
Millenium Flower Shoppe.

Center for Disease Control Publishes 3
Employer Flu-Preparedness Guidelines
Small businesses play a key role in protecting employees’ health and safety as well as limiting the impact to the economy and society during
an inﬂuenza pandemic. Advance planning for pandemic inﬂuenza is critical.
Over the past several years, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the CDC, and the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration have developed guidelines, including checklists, to assist businesses, industries and other employers in planning for a pandemic
outbreak as well as for other potential disasters.
Regardless of the size or type of your business, a bit of planning now can put strategies into place that will help protect the business and its
employees, when 2009 H1N1 ﬂu hits. It is important that the following list of recommendations be reviewed carefully and applied in the most
appropriate way to your small business.
• Identify a workplace coordinator who will be responsible for dealing with 2009 H1N1 ﬂu issues and their impact at the workplace,
including contacting local health department and health care providers in advance and developing and implementing protocols for response to
ill individuals. The coordinator should not wait for ﬂu season to start in order to establish those contacts and relationships, and check online
resources of local public health oﬃcials immediately to learn what you should be doing.
• Examine policies for leave, telework, and employee compensation and review with all employees so they are up-to-date on sick leave poli-
cies and employee assistance services that are covered under any of your employee-sponsored health plans. Leave policies should be ﬂexible,
non-punitive, and well-communicated. They should allow workers who have the ﬂu to stay home and away from co-workers. Also, plan to have
workers stay home if they have to care for sick family members. Be prepared, in the event that there are school closures, to allow workers ﬂex-
ible schedules or other accommodations so they can mind their children and keep them safe at home. Explore the possibility of some of your
workers working from home with appropriate infrastructure support.
• Determine who will be responsible for assisting ill individuals in the workplace, and make sure at least one person can serve as the “go to”
person if a worker becomes sick at the workplace.
• Identify essential employees, essential business functions, and other critical inputs (e.g. raw materials, suppliers, subcontractor services/
products, and logistics) required to maintain business operations should there be disruptions during the 2009 H1N1 ﬂu outbreak – and make
plans on how to communicate with people that perform essential tasks to provide them assignments and work direction. Explore other ways
you can continue business operations if there are supply chain or other disruptions.
• Share your pandemic plans with employees and clearly communicate expectations. It is important to let your employees know your plans
and expectations when 2009 H1N1 ﬂu outbreaks occur in communities where you have a workplace. Consider ways to communicate with
employees who do not speak English or those with disabilities.
• Prepare business continuity plans so that if there is signiﬁcant absenteeism or changes in the way you need to conduct business in the
workplace during this outbreak you can maintain operations. School dismissals and childcare provider closures may increase absenteeism in the
workplace. Health oﬃcials may also advise that workplaces take multiple steps to increase the space between people and decrease the frequency
of contact among people, also known as “social distancing” to reduce the spread of illness during a more severe outbreak.
• Establish an emergency communications plan. This plan includes identiﬁcation of key contacts (with back-ups), chain of communications
(including suppliers and customers), and processes for tracking and communicating business and employee status.
