System-wide Teacher of the Year awarded

Tia Lynn Ivey Community

The District Teacher of the Year has been named. Heather Jackson, a teacher at Morgan County Middle School for over 10 years, has been chosen to represent the entire school district and will be considered among the other Georgia District Teacher of the Year winners for the state Teacher of the Year.

Jackson was thrilled when she selected as Teacher of the Year for the middle school.

“It’s a wonderful honor. It’s just great to be able to represent MCMS and my community,” said Jackson. Now, Jackson has received a double honor to be named as District Teacher of the Year.

Her peers and higher-ups believe there is no one better for the role this year.

“I have known Ms. Jackson for six years, and she has an awesome and fantastic spirit. She has been a wonderful teacher here in our county,” said MCMS Assistant Principal Dr. Allison Woodard.

According to Jackson, who graduated from Morgan County High School, her upbringing right here in Morgan County inspired her to invest in the next generation as her teachers did with her.

“They inspired me to want to be an educator,” said Jackson.
