GCI Murfreesboro February 2015 Educator of the Month!

We would probably all agree that the willingness to work hard is a positive trait, but we would probably also agree that most hard work goes unnoticed!  In trying to be the change I would like to see in the world, I decided it would be important and good to begin recognizing the folks that are the very reason I have a job: the educators.

Each month, we hand out ballots to our students to select their nominee for the Educator of the Month award.  The rules for voters are simple: they may vote any teacher in the building except the one whose class they are currently in!  They may tout the virtues of their teachers to other students not in their class, but voting for their own is prohibited!

Once the votes have been tallied, the winner of the most votes will be named Educator of the Month so long as they did not win in the previous month.  That doesn’t mean your votes would be wasted, however, because the educator with the most votes at the end of the year will named Educator of the Year!*

*Winner must be actively employed at GCI Murfreesboro to with Educator of the Year!

With the rules being outlined, now it’s time to officially introduce GCI Murfreesboro Campus February 2015 Educator of the Month…
