Two Area Teachers Among State Masters
Friday, 22 May 2009

May 22-- Governor Sonny Perdue today announced the names of 112 new teachers who have earned the “Master Teacher” certification, a designation based on appreciable gains in student achievement.

Two of the teachers are from this area and include Mildred Price of Toombs Central Elementary School and Tim Gardner of Appling County High school.

“There are now 466 Master Teachers in Georgia who have demonstrated their expertise in helping our children achieve at higher levels,” said Governor Perdue. “They are masters at inspiring students to learn, and I am proud to recognize their tireless efforts and collective success in improving student achievement.”

Georgia’s Master Teacher Certification Program was championed by Governor Perdue during the 2005 legislation session and is coordinated by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC). It provides statewide recognition to certified public school teachers in Georgia who have at least three years of teaching experience and who consistently demonstrate instructional excellence through student achievement.

Master Teachers are eligible to automatically renew their teaching certificates as long as they continue to qualify for Master Teacher status.

“The Georgia Professional Standards Commission is proud to administer the Master Teacher certification program.” said Kelly Henson, Executive Secretary of the PSC. “We congratulate these teachers for their dedication and consistent leadership.”
