Synovus and Georgia Southern University College of Education (COE) announced another Teacher of the Game winner on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at Langston Chapel Middle School as part of their “Here’s to Teachers” campaign.
Davis was nominated by a former LCMS student, Chamaurie Jackson, who is now a high school sophomore. In her essay Jackson wrote, “Without Ms. Davis I wouldn’t be as serious as I am about life. She may be a science teacher, but she can teach anyone about life lessons and how to survive.”
Davis has been inspiring and encouraging students for 26 years, 22 of those in Bulloch County. She’s taught eighth-grade Physical Science at LCMS since the school opened in 1998, and this year she began a new role at the school teaching seventh-grade Advanced Science and Learning Lab Math and Reading.
Jackson’s essay went on to say that “Not only did Ms. Davis speak inspiration but she made science fun and clear. It was the first time I finished the whole year with an A in each 9 weeks. Ms. Davis helped me strive for better and whatever I wanted to do in life, she made me believe it.”
Davis will be featured on Paulson Stadium’s jumbo screen during GA Southern’s home football game on Nov. 18, and she and the other four Teacher of the Game winners will also be honored on the field during the game. This last Eagles home game is a special Education Appreciation Day for all educators and COE alumni.
Other Teachers of the Game winners from Bulloch County Schools include Jay McNeely of Nevils Elementary School, Simone Lane of William James Middle School, and Talmeshia Parker of Statesboro High School.
