Our teachers are amazing, which is why we share the story of a school’s Teacher of the Year every week ... please help us celebrate 2021 Creekview High School Teacher of the Year Morgan Hudson!
Creekview High School Teacher of the Year Morgan Hudson brings history to life for her students through technology.
Now in her eighth year of teaching AP U.S. History, Ms. Hudson leverages significant training in instructional technology to benefit her students. She’s a Microsoft Innovator Educator (MIE) Expert, the next-level designation for tech-savvy educators, and an MIE Trainer and Flipgrid Ambassador. She earned a master’s degree in instructional technology and an online teaching endorsement, plus a specialist in education degree in curriculum and instruction, all from Kennesaw State University.
This knowledge translates into unique engaging experiences for students like virtual field trips to the Minute Man Missile Silos guided by a National Park Ranger and one-on-one conversations with World War II veterans by video-conference.
This skillset is only one of the ways Ms. Hudson has distinguished herself at Creekview, as she also is known as an outstanding mentor to students who seek her guidance long after they finish her class.
“She genuinely cares for her students’ well being by investing her knowledge and experiences into each and every one of her pupils,” shared a former student, who now is studying political science at the University of Georgia and credits Ms. Hudson for cultivating her interest in social studies. “She is always available to anyone seeking advice or just a safe, friendly place to visit. Mrs. Hudson gives students the greatest gift – her time.”
In her own words: “I want to make a difference, be the change, teach students and inspire future teachers. To me, being a teacher is more than just a career choice, it is my calling. I consider myself lucky to wake up each day and go to a job I love.”
