Our Thoughts: Teacher of the Year
Placeholder Image


To be a teacher in today’s new bold world takes more than just being passionate. It means that constantly you have to willing to change to keep up with new methods of teaching that are required.

Modern teachers not only have to teach, they have to be psychiatrists, social workers, health monitors, and disciplinarians – and then most have to go home to their other job raising a family, which requires most of the same skills.

Last week the Rockdale County Public Schools honored the school-level Teachers of the Year, chosen by their peers, and named the county’s Teacher of the Year.

Cherie Ullo, an English teacher at the Rockdale Magnet School of Science and Technology, was honored with this prestigious award.

We congratulate Ullo and her fellow teachers for making wise decisions and their students who are for sure enriched by their passion.
