WATCH: Deal unveils “Destined for Greatness”

March 28, 2017

Gov. Nathan Deal, in conjunction with the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, today unveiled “Destined for Greatness,” the eighth installment of the “Real Teachers Real Voices” campaign. This initiative, which highlights exceptional educators around the state, stems from feedback provided by Deal’s Teacher Advisory Committee. “Destined for Greatness” features Cindy Apley Rose, an educator at Couch Middle School in Gwinnett County.

“I teach because I believe that every child who walks into my classroom is destined for greatness,” said Rose. “Every child deserves a quality education. They need a person in their lives who doesn’t just help them learn, but helps them learn from their mistakes. I don’t just ask them questions. I teach them to ask questions and to seek solutions.”
