Gordon Central High School’s Burnham Named Media Specialist of the Year for Northwest Georgia
Leigha Burnham, media specialist of the year for Gordon County Schools, has been selected as the Library Media Specialist of the Year for the Northwest GA District by the Georgia Library Media Association. Full Story
Gordon County Teacher of the Year
Sonoraville Elementary School
During pre-game festivities of the Gordon Central vs. Sonoraville Hig School football game on Friday, October 3, Kathyrn Worley from Sonoraville Elementary School was named district teacher of the year.
Ms. Worley has been teaching for 14 years and is currently serving as a kindergarten teacher at Sonoraville Elementary School. She received her undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education in 2001 from the University of Georgia. She then went on to complete a Master’s degree from Walden University and a Specialist’s degree from Nova Southeastern University.
Ms. Worley believes that her greatest contribution to education happens every year in her kindergarten classroom as she strives to provide each and every student a strong foundation for their educational journey. For her, every student can learn; however, because every student does not learn the same way, it is important to implement strategies with struggling learners to help them achieve success. She feels that teachers can be most effective when they “know” their students by knowing each student’s needs, interests, strengths, and weaknesses. Ms. Worley believes that the more we are focusing on the students’ needs -- the more students will achieve!
Ms. Worley will represent Gordon County Schools in the 2016 Georgia Teacher of the Year competition.
