2015 Teachers of the Year know how to produce great students
Placeholder Image

A great teacher has the capability of not only molding young minds but changing lives, not only for students, but for the community.

Great teachers like Mary Anne Collier know that math can be a tricky subject, but a little extra attention and time spent with a struggling student can make all the difference.

Great teachers like Joey Forbes know that the technical aspect of learning a sheet of music is important, but the life lessons and experiences of being a member of the school band mean so much more.

Today, we recognize Collier, Forbes and the other teachers of Hall and Gainesville schools who know that teaching is more than standing in front of a group of students — it’s a chance, every day and in every young life, to be great.
