The first day of American Education Week brought with it a special surprise for several Tift County Teachers. Teachers around the district that were selected as this year's Teachers of Excellence were surprised by members of their family and Administrative Office staff as they were tapped by representatives from the Tift County Foundation for Educational Excellence.
The teachers that were selected are:
Paige Bennett - Omega Elementary
Amy Lever - J T Reddick Elementary
Amanda York - Charles Spencer Elementary
Jessica Walls - Charles Spencer Elementary
Jennifer Alexander - Tift County High School
Peter Pinnow - Tift County High School
Harlie Foremes - Annie Belle Clark Elementary
Lacey Donahoo - Northeast Middle School
Martine Rousey - Northeast Middle School
Robin Lasseter - Omega Elementary
Each teacher was presented with a plaque and they will be honored at a banquet held at a later date that is sponsored by the Rotary Club.
We would like to congratulate these teachers and thank them for the amazing job that they do for the students of Tift County!
