Local history teacher named Georgia SAR Teacher of the Year

The Georgia Society Sons of the American Revolution has selected one of Fayette’s middle school teachers as their 2009-2010 Georgia Teacher of the Year.

Sue Mullin, a Georgia history teacher and team leader at J.C. Booth Middle, has been selected from a pool of exemplary middle and high school history teachers throughout the state, both public and private, as an example of whose instruction on the Revolutionary War demonstrates educational efforts in the classroom that exceed and excel above current and accepted curriculum requirements. She will receive her award at a special program on April 3 in Atlanta.

As the state winner, Mullin will represent Georgia at the national competition for the Tom & Betty Lawrence American History Teacher Award. The national winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Freedoms Foundation Summer Teacher Graduate Workshop at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. The workshop provides a professional education opportunity to an educator who will bring back to the classroom a heightened level of creativity and enthusiasm about the American Revolutionary era.

Last year the Georgia Veterans of Foreign Wars named Mullin the Georgia Citizenship Education Teacher of the Year for middle schools. She is also Booth’s 2009-2010 Teacher of the Year.
