Dara Booher

2022 Teacher of the Year
Agriscience Teacher and

FFA Advisor
North Fork Middle School

Superintendent Mark Johnston, Lisa Rogers, and Assistant Principal Bereczki

Dara Booher is completing her fifth year of teaching in Shenandoah County Public Schools.

North Fork Middle School Principal Annmarie Noonan comments: “Ms. Booher leads her life with love and kindness. When faced with a challenge, instead of blaming or speaking poorly of others, she genuinely seeks advice and ideas for how to self-improve and overcome the challenge. She is so reflective and so genuinely positive, happy, and kind.”  Career and Technical Education Supervisor Todd Lynn adds: “Throughout her time as an educator, I have known Ms. Booher to be a great communicator and collaborator. She is willing to take a risk and try something new but is always willing to take on feedback and ask clarifying questions. In doing so, she has always put her students first to make sure they are safe but challenged with new and innovative best practices within agriculture. Her ability to work with others across disciplines, her thirst for knowledge, and her passion to work with students are commendable.”  Again, Principal Noonan, “Ms. Booher is a phenomenal instructor. Her students LOVE her, and it is inspiring to see each year how much our students learn by being in her class. In Ms. Booher’s class, the focus isn’t on teaching, it’s on learning. She seems to reach every single student she has. Students who would be defined by other teachers as “challenging” or “difficult” thrive in Ms. Booher’s class.”
