This summer, the GCPS Book Mobile will travel in the Meadowcreek Cluster each week, checking out school library books to students who may not have easy access to the public library.
562 veteran educators and support staff members marked their retirement from GCPS.
Congratulations to Jamie Lynn McFarland! A special education teacher at Rock Springs ES and the district’s 2017 Teacher of the Year, Ms. McFarland has been selected as one of 10 finalists for the title of 2018 Georgia Teacher of the Year.
The 10 finalists were chosen from a pool of 150 applicants. Like Ms. McFarland, all the finalists had been previously selected as their school district’s Teacher of the Year. The applications were read by a panel of judges that included teachers, past Georgia Teacher of the Year winners, and finalists, administrators, community leaders and others. The finalists were chosen based on the strength of their essay responses. Over the next several weeks, a panel of judges will conduct interviews and observe speeches given by the finalists. The winner will be announced June 12.
The 2018 Georgia Teacher of the Year will travel around the state and the nation, serving as Georgia’s ambassador for the teaching profession. The winning teacher also will be entered in the National Teacher of the Year competition. Learn more about Gwinnett’s top teacher in the video from GCPS TV.
