A Cherokee County School District teacher has earned a statewide award recognizing educators as heroes!
Grace Ed Technologies today, National Teacher Appreciation Day, announced the three winners of its 2021 Teacher Heroes Awards including Cherokee High School teacher and coach Jeremy Law.
The education technology company accepted nominations statewide of K-12 teachers who have demonstrated extraordinary dedication, effort, character and ability over the past school year. More than 100 highly qualified teachers were nominated, with 12 finalists selected and then narrowed to the three winners. Each winner will receive a $1,000 award.
“It is a true privilege to be able to recognize just a handful of the many incredible teachers we have in Georgia,” get owner Brent Coleman said. “This year, more than ever, all our teachers deserve to be congratulated, recognized and honored. We truly appreciate all they do for the benefit and future of our children.”
Coach Law, who is a special education teacher and a football coach, is a past CCSD Teacher of the Year, an honor he earned for his service at Teasley Middle School. An Etowah High School graduate, Coach Law earned a bachelor’s degree in business and pursued a career in banking before he realized his true calling was to teach and coach youth. He taught at Teasley MS and coached football at Sequoyah HS before joining the Cherokee HS faculty and has earned a master’s degree in special education and a specialist degree in curriculum and instruction. At Cherokee HS, he also has helped lead programs for youth including the school’s FCA club and Student-Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) program.
“Jeremy demonstrates servant leadership daily,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower. “He has earned this recognition through all he does to teach and coach his students and support and mentor his colleagues. Congratulations and thank you for the great care you show for every Warrior.”
