Rees Named Georgia SAR Teacher of the Year

The Georgia Society Sons of the American Revolution has selected a Fayette County middle school teacher as their Georgia Teacher of the Year for the second consecutive time.

Salli Rees, an eighth grade Georgia history teacher at J.C. Booth Middle School in Peachtree City, 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 February 5.

As the state winner, Rees 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 one of four seminars. Each seminar 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 Rees the Georgia Citizenship Education Teacher of the Year for middle schools.
