Gov. Nathan Deal has recognized three Columbia County educators as Master Teachers.
Kathleen Kohl, Kimberly Wall and Jessica Wilkerson will carry the title of Master Teachers for seven years. Fifty-five other Georgia teachers were also recognized.
A Master Teacher must positively influence student achievement, provide professional practices in the classroom and exemplify dedication and passion for teaching.
There must be a clear connection between the educator’s instruction and the student’s achievement or progress and a high classroom performance on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test.
