Written by  Tuesday, 12 March 2013 00:15

  State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge Monday announced the finalists for 2014 Georgia Teacher of the Year. One of them is a Bulloch County teacher.

    
  Jemelleh Coes, an English Language Arts and Reading teacher at Langston Chapel Middle School, is one of 10 finalists chosen from a pool of 155 applicants who were selected as the Teacher of the Year in their school districts. 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.

 

  Coes said it was a great honor to be chosen Bulloch County’s Teacher of the Year and being named among the top statewide is “truly astonishing.”

 

  Bulloch County School Superintendent said the entire system is proud of her and was looking forward to her representing Bulloch County at the state level.

 

  Over the next several weeks, a panel of judges will conduct video observations and interview each of the finalists. The finalists will also give a speech at a luncheon sponsored by Georgia Power in April. The winner will be announced at the Georgia Teacher of the Year banquet on May 3, 2013, at the Georgia International Convention Center.

 

  The 2014 Georgia Teacher of the Year will travel around the state and the nation, serving as an ambassador for the teaching profession. The winner will also be entered in the National Teacher of the Year competition.
