ALBANY, GA (WALB) –You're never too old or too smart to learn something new--even if you're a teacher.
Colquitt County High School teacher Gwen Deselle is Georgia's Teacher of the Year. She spent time with Dougherty County teachers Tuesday afternoon.
Social studies teachers became students as Deselle shared her classroom experiences and techniques. Deselle says teaching is about constantly learning.
"You'd better. We have to learn all the time. I was in the 4H Club and our motto was "Make The Best Better" and everyday that's what we do in teaching. We look for the best strategy and work constantly to improve it to make it better," said Deselle.
Deselle says she enjoys traveling the state as Teacher of the Year. She says she continues to learn new things and she plans to keep passing the knowledge along.
