Clay Elementary School’s Gifted Education Specialist Teresa Reddish was named as the recipient of the Mary Frasier Equity & Excellence Award this week by the Georgia Association for Gifted Children.
The award is “presented to an organization or individual who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in practices that promote equitable identification procedures and/or provision of high-quality services to gifted students from underrepresented groups (economically disadvantaged, minority, or disabled, or those who are limited English proficient).”
Sarah Kessel, Cobb’s Supervisor of Advanced Learning Programs, said Reddish is an excellent example of what it means to educate and develop exceptional students here in Cobb.
“Teresa is an inspirational educator who is devoted to developing talent within her gifted students and the children of Clay Elementary School,” she said. “She serves as a mentor for other gifted teachers in Area 1 and is a teacher leader in our district.”
The award was presented at GAGC’s annual conference.
