Math Teacher Earns “Master” Status

Only an elite few hold the designation of “Master Teacher.” Dr. Carol Taylor, an eighth grade math teacher at Rising Starr Middle, is now a member of this distinguished group.

She joins 85 other teachers throughout the state who have earned their Master Teacher Certification based on demonstrated excellence in student achievement and student growth for 2011.

Fayette currently has nine Master Teachers spread among two elementary and three middle schools.

Georgia’s Master Teacher Certification Program was established in 2005 and is coordinated by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC). Based on classroom performance on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT), documentation of student growth, and exemplary professional practices, superior teachers are designated as “Master Teachers” for a period of seven years.

Master Teachers are eligible to automatically renew their teaching certificates as long as they continue to qualify for Master Teacher status.

Dr. Taylor was also Fayette County’s 2009 Teacher of the Year.
