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.
