MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The librarian at the Browns River Middle School in Jericho has been named the 2016 Vermont humanities educator of the year.

The Vermont Humanities Council announced Monday that Joyce Yoo Babbitt will be awarded the fourteenth Victor R. Swenson Humanities Educator Award on Nov. 5.

The event takes place at the University of Vermont's Dudley H. Davis Center during the council's fall conference.

A fellow teacher at Browns River Middle School says Babbitt "doesn't just command a room full of books, she commands a center of learning that enriches the educational experience of every student."
