ANNOUNCING FEBRUARY’S TEACHERS OF THE MONTH
We’d like to thank everyone who participated last month in our Teacher of the Month Award program. As always, we received many heartfelt nominations! Our panel has selected this month’s award recipients, and attorney Shane Smith says, “It’s obvious that February’s teachers of the month put their hearts and souls into their students. They both make a special effort to make every one of their students feel important, and that’s just a wonderful thing.”
Peachtree City attorney Shane Smith is recognizing outstanding local educators with his Law Offices of Shane Smith Teacher of the Month Award program for the 2013-2014 school year. Each month, the law firm recognizes and rewards two outstanding local educators – one from Coweta and one from Fayette – for their dedication to their students. These teachers can be nominated by anyone who wishes to participate, and the award recipients will be selected by a special panel of local citizens.
The Coweta County teacher who is awarded Teacher of the Month for February is Mr. Todd Reed, a special education teacher from East Coweta High School. Mr. Reed is a patient and caring teacher who strives to motivate each and every one of his students to do their very best in all that they do. He is also a compassionate coworker and community activist who has the respect of his students and peers.
The Fayette County teacher who is awarded Teacher of the Month for February is Mr. Todd Little, the Art teacher at Starr’s Mill High School. Mr. Little is an inspiration to his students, pushing them to do what they think they can’t. He takes the time to get to know each of his students and make them feel important. He has a talent for making art fun while still challenging his students. One of his students recently said, “I am thankful to be learning from him!”
The glowing nominations received by the Law Offices of Shane Smith demonstrate the loving, positive impact these teachers have on their students. We want to thank Mr. Reed and Mr. Little for everything that they do for their students and our children, and for being among a select few who go above and beyond their peers and their pay grades. As a token of our gratitude for these outstanding local educators, each of these ladies has received a $200 check for school supplies and a $25 gift card to Partner’s Pizza.
