Fix Is Bulloch's Top Teacher
Linda Fix, an 11th and 12th-grade literature teacher at Southeast Bulloch High School (SEBHS) was named Bulloch County’s 2016 Teacher of the Year at a district-wide reception on Thursday evening at the school system’s central office. This is the second time that she’s received such an honor from a school system. Bryan County Schools named her as their teacher of the year in 2001.
Selected from Bulloch County’s 15 school-level teachers of the year by a five-member community committee, Fix will now represent the district in the Georgia Teacher of the Year competition in May, and possibly go on to compete in the National Teacher of the Year program in February 2016, the event that corresponds to her title designation.
Georgia Pre-K Week is October 6-10
Bulloch County Schools celebrated the fourth annual Georgia Pre-K Week October 6 -10. The week-long series of events supported the 22nd anniversary of the state’s nationally recognized pre-k program. More than 100 state legislators committed to visiting Pre-k centers in their districts to read to students, meet with instructors, tour the facilities and observe students learning.
In Bulloch County, we were glad to welcome back Rep. Jan Tankersley, who read the stories, Harry the Dirty Dog and We're Going on a Leaf Hunt, to Ms. Melissa Williams' and Ms. Carolyn Lanier's pre-kindergarten classes. “Georgia Pre-K is such an important program that helps give children a positive first experience in school and helps improve graduation rates,” said Tankersley.
Georgia Pre-K Week is hosted annually by Voices for Georgia’s Children (www.georgiavoices.org), and supported by Georgia Power, Synovus and Scholastic Corporation.. Established in 2003, it is a nonprofit child policy and advocacy organization that envisions a Georgia where children are safe, healthy, educated, employable, and connected to their family and community. Their mission is to be a powerful, unifying voice for a public agenda that ensures the well-being of all of Georgia’s children.
Bulloch County Schools has 17 pre-k classes that are located at 11 of the school system’s campuses and serves 420 students. Across Georgia there are more than 84,000 students in pre-k centers. Bulloch County Schools also serves 22 special needs students through the Pre-K Disabilities Program. The school system has 34 pre-k teachers and assistant teachers. Principals serve as site directors at their campuses, and Jennifer Wade at the central office is the program's local director.
Students Sing Their Way to the Top
In the eight years since Southeast Bulloch High School began its choral program with a mere 20 students, its director and vocalists have literally sung their way to the top. From upcoming concerts at the Lucas Theater in Savannah to New York’s Carnegie Hall, the school’s Advanced Chorus is receiving high acclaim from the state’s music educators.
