COE alumnae are named teachers of the year in Candler County

Each year, in every public school in the state of Georgia, a top teacher is named. The Georgia Teacher of the Year Program annually spotlights the teaching profession and recognizes outstanding public school teachers. This fall, the Candler County School District recognized their Teachers of the Year (for school year 2016-2017).

The College of Education would like to recognize the Georgia Southern University alumnae who were selected as Candler County teachers of the year. Congratulations on a job well done!
