Two Cherokee County School District teachers have won a statewide teaching award!
Dr. Jennifer Reynolds and Greg Koch of Teasley Middle School have earned the Georgia Council for Exceptional Children’s Co-Teaching Team of the Year Award for 2017-18.
The Award recognizes a special education teacher and a general education teacher who teach together and “exemplify the best in differentiated instructional practices that meet the needs of all students.” Winners are selected based on instructional practices, positive learning environment, differentiated instruction, evidence of student progress, collaboration, leadership, and mentoring. Dr. Reynolds is a special education teacher, and Mr. Koch is a language arts teacher.
“Our School District is renowned for its high-quality special education services, and it’s outstanding teachers like Dr. Reynolds and Mr. Koch who earn us this reputation,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “They care deeply about all of the children in their classroom. Together, they work hard to ensure students’ needs are met no matter where the student is in his or her learning journey. We’re so proud of them and this honor.”
The Award will be presented at the Council’s IDEAS Conference in June at St. Simon’s Island on June 5.
Dr. Reynolds and Mr. Koch will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at the Board’s June 21 meeting.
