Madison County High School science teacher Dr. Andy Felt is one of 10 finalists for Georgia’s “Teacher of the Year.”
County school superintendent Dr. Allen McCannon said Felt is a teacher who connects with his students.
“Dr. Felt makes a real difference in the lives of our students,” said McCannon. “I am so pleased that the state is recognizing his skill, knowledge, hard work, and dedication. Dr. Felt makes science fun for students as they learn. He is committed to the use of technology and making learning relevant to the lives of students.”
Felt said he was “surprised and honored” to receive the news.
“I think it is really important for kids to be excited and engaged as they learn scientific content, and that was what I wrote about in my application,” said Felt, Madison County’s systemwide “Teacher of the Year.” “It is also important for today’s students to learn how to use technology effectively to prepare them for college and careers, and this has been a big part of my work over the last couple of years.”
Felt said he feels fortunate to teach science at MCHS.
