Each year, the Macon County School District leaders honor one teacher in the district for their outstanding accomplishments and dedication to students by naming a “Teacher of the Year.” This year, the Macon County School District had the honor of recognizing one of their own former students, Andrea Chalker, as the 2015 Teacher of the Year.
“Teaching is a challenging endeavor,” said Chalker. “We are not developing a product. We are inspiring human beings, our next generation. To be successful, you have to be supported and collaborate with the community around you. That includes your administration, peers, coaches, parents, community members, businesses, the list goes on and on. I have been blessed to have been surrounded by the best from my beginnings at Cartoogechaye all the way to my current school in Highlands.”
