A Carrollton Elementary School third grade teacher has been elected to serve on the Georgia Science Teachers Association (GSTA) Board of Directors.
Ann Cox will be sworn in next month.
GSTA is committed to supporting excellence in science teaching for the students of Georgia. GSTA works to connect, inform, support, and advocate for science teachers in Georgia.
“After having presented at conferences over the past few years, I decided to run for district representative,” said Cox. “The science and STEM activities we provide our students here at Carrollton City Schools are unique and people want to hear about them.”
GSTA has 12 districts. Carrollton City Schools is in District 5, which also includes Butts, Coweta, Fayette, Harris, Heard, Henry, Lamar, Meriwether, Newton, Pike, Spalding, Thomaston-Upson, and Troup counties.
"Mrs. Cox goes above and beyond each day, in her endeavor to inspire our youngest learners with a passion for STEM," said CES Principal Kylie Carroll. "She is a lifelong learner who seeks to continuously gain knowledge and better her craft, and she conveys her love for learning to her students and colleagues. I think she will be a great addition to the GSTA board."
Cox said she is excited for the opportunity to serve on the board.
“I enjoy collaborating with like-minded teachers and look forward to representing our district and being a proactive member of the board. I am also looking forward to meeting other STEM and science teachers in our district, supporting their growth as teachers, and building up our community.”
