Two CCSD Teachers Named 2021 Georgia STEM Scholars

E.T. Booth MS teacher Daniele Deneka and Teasley MS teacher Scott Reece, who teach engineering and technology classes, were recently named 2021 Georgia STEM Scholars by Georgia Youth Science & Technology Centers. Each year, only about two dozen teachers from a pool of statewide nominees are recognized as STEM Scholars.

Honored K-8 teachers are selected for their excellence in teaching children about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and their innovation in integrating STEM lessons in elementary and middle school education. Each honoree receives a $500 award to purchase classroom STEM supplies.

“We’re so proud of Daniele and Scott for earning this statewide honor recognizing their dedication to STEM education, which follows numerous other professional achievements by both of these accomplished teachers,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said, noting that they are also past Teacher of the Year winners for their schools. “STEM learning provides our students with a window to many excellent job opportunities in those fields, but also refines their critical thinking skills that are important for success in all careers and in life.”
