Georgia DOE Chooses Ashmore as a Teacher of the Year Finalist

Monday morning, immediately before a classroom observation, Michelle Ashmore received a phone call from State Superintendent Richard Woods. While she wasn’t sure what the phone call was about, it became clear that it was some news she had been waiting to hear for months: she has been named a 2017 State Teacher of the Year Finalist in Georgia.

Full of tears, she thanked Superintendent Woods for the great news…but there was a catch. She had to wait a full day to share it because all of the finalists had not been notified. Clearing up her face and bottling the excitement, she carried on throughout the day as if everything was normal.
