Superintendent's Update

Mr Chance Nix PictureCatoosa County Schools has a long history of recognizing outstanding educators with the Teacher of the Year award. The award is presented to a teacher who has demonstrated excellence in teaching and a commitment to student success.

Mrs. Julie Dietz from Woodstation Elementary School is the Catoosa County Public Schools Teacher of the Year for 2023-2024. Mrs. Dietz represents excellence and her principal, Mr. Ernie Ellis said, “Mrs. Dietz has taught her students to grow both in academics and socially in order for them to become the students they are today. No matter their age, she has students who still remember her as their first teacher who laid the foundation for their education. She is a wonderful part of Woodstation’s culture.”

Educators play a vital role in our society. Teachers are responsible for preparing our children for the future by providing them with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed. Educators also play an important role in shaping the character of our children. They teach them about the importance of hard work, perseverance, and respect for others.

Teachers have a profound impact on the lives of their students. They can inspire students to learn, help them develop their talents, and prepare them for success in the future. Teaching is the profession that creates all other professions. Teachers can inspire students to pursue their dreams and help students discover their passions and talents. They can also help students develop the confidence and perseverance they need to achieve their goals.

Lifelong learning is important for everyone. The world is constantly changing, so we must be able to adapt to those changes. Teachers help inspire lifelong learners. They help students grow as individuals and in turn, expand their horizons so that they become part of our thriving community. Lifelong learning helps us stay competitive in the workforce because we recognize the workforce is constantly changing and we need to be able to help our students adapt to those changes.

Catoosa County Public Schools Board of Education and Superintendent Nix are grateful for the hard work and dedication of its educators. Superintendent Nix said, “Our teachers go above and beyond every day. Whether it's coming in early to tutor, working late grading papers, or going to their students' evening and weekend activities. They are essential to the success of our students and our community as a whole”.
