Brunswick, Ga. – Nineteen educators in the Glynn County School System who were named Teacher of the Year at their respective schools will now be considered in the process that will select Glynn County’s 2022-23 Teacher of the Year. School-level Teachers of the Year are:

School-level Teachers of the Year were selected by their peers to represent their school in the county program. Finalists will be named from the school-level Teachers of the Year and a panel of retired educators will observe each finalist in his or her classroom before selecting the county Teacher of the Year. The formal announcement will be made at a reception in November co-sponsored by the Glynn County School System and the Brunswick-Golden Isles Chamber of Commerce.
The Glynn County Teacher of the Year will represent the county in the Georgia Department of Education’s Teacher of the Year program. The educator selected acts as an ambassador for all Georgia public school teachers, systems and students, and typically takes a one-year sabbatical to work directly with the state Department of Education. The 2022-23 Georgia Teacher of the Year will be announced at a banquet in Atlanta next spring.
