Albany  --  Mathematics teacher Kenneth L. Williams was named Albany Technical College's 2006 Teacher of the Year.

His work to educate students doesn't stop at the classroom door. Williams implemented a web-based mathematics course to help students pass the college entrance exam, and he organized student study groups.

Williams tutors Albany Tech students in various mathematics courses and mentors high risk students throughout the community. Williams has served as the Student Government Advisor for three years and chaperoned students at the Phi Beta Lambda state conference.

He also developed online and web-enhanced math courses used by hundreds of students. On September 14th, the Albany Technical College Foundation recognized Williams and awarded him a $500 check for his dedication to the college and its students.

Williams will now compete on a regional and state level for The Rick Perkins Award for Excellence in Technical Instruction. Instructors are nominated for the Rick Perkins Award by their respective technical college.

Competition among instructors occurs at the regional level, and a winner is selected from each region. The six regional winners receive statewide recognition for their achievement, and then move to state-level competition.

Final state-level judging occurs in September, and the Rick Perkins Award Winner is announced at the Annual Lighthouse Banquet September 26-28, 2006. The Rick Perkins Award winner serves as an ambassador for technical education in Georgia.

He or she will make many public appearances throughout the year including addresses to the Georgia General Assembly, the Governor and the Georgia Technical College System Leadership Conference.
