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!

How did you hear about/join the GCI team?
I heard about a school (GCI) coming to Murfreesboro when I was graduating the esthetic program. A few years later Ms.Shuntelle brought a class over for a spa tour of my place.
She then asked me to be a guest speaker for her class. I enjoyed the visit and the feeling of being able to inspire future students .I became friends with a few staff members of GCI. Later I was called and asked if I was interested in a scholarship to teach.

What I enjoy most about teaching is seeing that desire in students eyes and helping to bring that to life

My advice to aspiring teachers….never let this become a job, when it does its time to move on.
