Windsor Forest High School students and staff are celebrating Ernie Lee. Lee is the Georgia Teacher of the Year. Lee has been teaching for five years after leaving a long-time career practicing law. He will now spend the next school year touring the state inspiring other teachers and speaking about the Savannah-Chatham school district.
“Teachers have to stick together because there’s such a high burn out rate for teachers but I think if we can build relationships and let people know they are not alone in the classroom it’s a win-win and you’ve got to let other people know what you can do to help them and what they can do to help you,” said Lee.
Lee will now compete at the national level for teacher of the year. He will also get to meet the President.
