McConnell Named as State TOTY Finalist 

Heather McConnell has been selected as one of the ten finalists for the 2017 Georgia Teacher of the Year (GTOTY) award. Ms. McConnell, a Special Education teacher at Gainesville Middle School, will join the other finalists at a special luncheon in Atlanta.  

Sponsored by the Georgia Department of Education, Georgia's Teacher of the Year program annually spotlights the teaching profession and recognizes outstanding public school teachers at the local and state levels. The prestigious awards program focuses on honoring exceptional educators who pursue excellence in teaching while inspiring students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn and succeed within the classroom and beyond. The 2017 Georgia Teacher of the Year will be announced at the state banquet in May. 

Congratulations to Ms. McConnell for her outstanding achievement! We are proud of our "Red Elephant" for her dedication and commitment to inspiring and challenging our students of special needs!
