Double Eagle, Teacher of the Year, Marci Cochran

What does it mean to you to be honored as teach of the year?

It is a privilege to be named teacher of the year by your peers. Knowing your peers think you highly of you as a teacher means so much.

Where are you from?

Born and raised in Macon, GA and have lived in Brooklet for 18 years.

Where are you now, and how has your education at southern helped you get there?

I am finishing up my 19th year of teaching, 16 years in Bulloch County and my second year at Brooklet Elementary. My education at Southern prepared me to enter the teaching field, gave me the experience I needed to succeed, and the confidence to lead my own classroom.

What does it mean to you to be a Double Eagle?

I was born and raised an Eagle fan. Both my parents, aunt, and two sisters all graduate from Southern. Being able to get both my undergrad and graduate degree from the best university was always my dream!
