COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Teachers throughout Muscogee County are being recognized for being great teachers all year long.
Dozens gathered at the Trade Center for the Teacher of the Year Honorees Recognition Breakfast on Tuesday, hosted by the Muscogee County School District.
Former winners, board members, and WTVM's general manager Lee Brantley were all in attendance.
We spoke with school board member Athavia Senior who explains what it means to her to be able to recognize these teachers.
"To acknowledge outstanding work that a teacher is going above and beyond the call of duty, which they all do, but there is one that is outstanding, and to give them recognition, means a lot," Senior said.
Those in attendance spent their morning giving recognition to the Teacher of the Year honorees.
The top ten in the running for the 2013 Muscogee County Teacher of the Year were also announced, and the winner will be announced in May.
