Congratulations to the Cherokee County School District’s 2021 School Teachers of the Year winners!

Every fall, each CCSD school is asked to select its own Teacher of the Year.  These school-level winners now are eligible for the honor of Cherokee County School District 2021 Teacher of the Year. 

The Districtwide competition will be judged by a panel of retired educators and community partners based on applications submitted by the school-level winners.  Four CCSD Finalists then will be announced by the Superintendent of Schools.  They, along with all school winners, will be honored at the Legacy Makers: CCSD Teachers of the Year Celebration in the spring ... at which the CCSD 2021 Teacher of the Year will be announced.  The overall CCSD winner will be entered into the Georgia Teacher of the Year competition.

“We’re so excited to celebrate these outstanding teachers,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said.  “This award program allows our educators to recognize the peers who they most admire for their skills as teachers, mentors and leaders.  While the pandemic has postponed our traditional in-person awards event to the spring, the School Board and I look forward to thanking these exceptional educators then and joining with our CCSD Partners to present them with gifts of appreciation.”
