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 will recognize and reward two outstanding local educators – one from Coweta and one from Fayette - for their often overlooked efforts. 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.
Coweta County’s October Teacher of the Month Award goes to Dr. Page Tarleton, a kindergarten teacher at Arbor Springs Elementary School. She has been teaching for 18 years and says, “Teaching kindergarten is not like a job to me – it is my life, and I strive every day to inspire a life-long love of learning in all of my kindergarten babies.” Dr. Tarleton also utilizes technology in her teaching and maintains an interactive website for her students and their parents.
To nominate a teacher for November’s Teacher of the Month Award, please visit www.LocalTeacherOfTheMonth.com and complete the nomination form by November 20th.
