Liz Driggers, a Health and Physical Education teacher and coach at Statesboro High School has been selected by the Georgia Department of Education to serve on the 2017-18 State School Superintendent’s Teacher Advisory Council.
The council is comprised of teachers from across the state representing elementary, middle, and high schools and all subject areas. The purpose is to meet in small groups and participate in informal conversations regarding issues that are of concern to teachers and to share ideas with State Superintendent Richard Woods and Chief of Staff Matt Jones.
The council meets twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. The Teacher Advisory Council’s first meeting is Friday, Oct. 20, at the GaDOE’s office in Atlanta.
Driggers is a graduate of Georgia Southern where she is a double Eagle earning her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in health and physical education and kinesiology. She also earned a specialist’s degree in the Pedagogy of Coaching from Valdosta State University. In October 2015, Driggers was selected as Bulloch County Schools’ 2017 Teacher of the Year. Her seven-year teaching career has all been in Statesboro High School and Bulloch County Schools.
Driggers is a strong advocate for education as a career. “As an educator, one of the greatest things you can do is to inspire the next generation to become a teacher,” she said.
