Ethel Kight teacher wins regional essay contest
Ethel W. Kight Magnet School teacher Molly Callaway recently was honored at a Board of Education meeting. Board member Debbie Burdette gave the following commendation:
“An Ethel W. Kight Magnet School fourth grade teacher began her fall break in an adventurous fashion.
Ms. Callaway entered an essay contest open to science teachers through West Georgia RESA – Regional Educational Service Agency. In the essay, the educators were asked to develop a unit of study to deliver to their students which incorporated technology.
Contest winners won a trip to The Plantation on Crystal River, Fla., to swim with manatees. Callaway was one of seven teachers from the West Georgia RESA District selected to attend the trip. She was the only elementary school teacher in the group and the only Troup County School System teacher.
The winners also attended lectures on the guidelines of swimming with the manatees as well as the history of Citrus County, Fla. Additionally, the educators visited nearby Three Sisters Springs, Homosassa State Wildlife Park and participated in a river drift tour.
She is excited to share her experience and eager to begin the life science unit that she created for her group of about 90 fourth graders which incorporates several Georgia Performance Life Science Standards as well as Common Core Reading Standards and a variety of technology tools.”
