Four Atlanta Public Schools teachers have earned Master Teacher Certification from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission in 2010. They are Emily Boatright (Inman Middle, profiled here), Endia Way (Perkerson Elementary), TaiShara Twyman (Dobbs Elementary) and Wendy Baker (Inman Middle). To earn the Master Teacher Certification, candidates must have at least three years experience in the classroom on a Georgia Clear Renewal Certificate and demonstrate evidence linking their classroom instruction to student achievement and academic progress. Master Teachers serve as mentors and coaches for other teachers and are invited to attend conferences and seminars throughout the year as the voice of Georgia educators.
