COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- Two East Cobb teachers are among only 24 educators statewide to earn Master Teacher certification in 2014.
A teacher earns the distinction if his or her students show growth in the classroom and perform well on the CRCT. Educators must also exhibit exemplary professional practices to become Master Teachers, according to Gov. Nathan Deal.
"Georgia's Master Teachers devote their careers to cultivating the minds of our future generations," Deal said in a releae. "I am proud of these individuals for the example they are setting and for their dedication to our students and our state as a whole."
Cobb County's two new Master Teachers are Melissa Danner, a 5th grade teacher at Mt. Bethel Elementary School, and Dr. Sunderland "Sunny" Williams, who teaches 6th and 7th grade language arts at Dickerson Middle School.
