Double Eagle, Teacher of the Year, Erin Cabral
What does it mean to you to be honored as teacher of the year?
I feel so incredibly honored to have been named Teacher of the Year by my co-workers. I teach with a lot of amazing people and I feel so special and appreciated. I am honestly still in shock because it is not very often that Connection Teachers receive this special honor.
Where are you from?
I am from Howell, Michigan. I attended Our Lady of Mercy High School in Farmington Hills, Michigan.
Where are you now, and how has your education at southern helped you get there?
I currently live in Statesboro, GA and teach at William James Middle School. I just completed my 13th year of teaching middle school Health, Physical Education and Weight Lifting. My education from Georgia Southern University has had a major influence in my development and continued growth as a teacher. I still have great relationships with my professors and enjoy serving as a Clinical Supervisor for Georgia Southern student teachers each year. I learned how to create a challenging, safe, inclusive, structured learning environment for students to grow in.
What does it mean to you to be a Double Eagle?
I have a huge sense of pride being a student-athlete Double Eagle graduate from Georgia Southern University. I feel that all of my hard work and dedication is due to the path that Georgia Southern helped lead me down.
