CCAS Teacher Receives Honors

Congraulations to our own Katie Johnson for recieving the Teacher of the Quiarter Award presented by the Rotary Club of Jackson during the organization’s weekly luncheon held October 26, 2015 along with two other JPS teachers. Award recipients received a certificate of appreciation and a gift bag. The first Teacher of the Quarter Awards recipients were:

  • Katie Johnson, Capital City Alternative School
  • Kelly Gann, Spann Elementary School
  • Michael Walker, Whitten Middle School

Teacher of the Quarter honorees are JPS teachers who demonstrate excellence in their profession and go the extra mile to serve scholars and the community.

Working in conjunction the District's offices of Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports and Partners in Education, the Jackson Rotary Club holds Teacher of the Quarter celebrations to recognize outstanding implementation of PBIS practices. The Rotary Club recognizes one JPS teacher from each academic division–elementary, middle, and high school–during the celebration.

Through community service and other means, Rotary Club members help to promote peace and understanding in the local community and throughout the world.
