Award-Winning Teachers!


We are very proud of Jennifer Bostwick.  She served as a pedagogy lab instructor for Clayton State University’s Language Arts class on October 16, 2006. According to the Professor of Curriculum & Instruction, " One of the strengths of the Middle Grades Teacher Education program at Clayton University is its close working relationship with exemplary middle school teachers like you". Way to go Ms. Bostwick!

Cherie Long, an 8th grade Algebra teacher, received the 2005 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Ms. Long spent a week in Washington, D.C. where she shook hands with politicians and other leaders to raise the profile of math and science education in the United States.  She received an award signed by President Bush in a special ceremony held in Washington.  Ms. Long also received $10,000, along with many other learning materials and technology programs that will benefit the students at Ola Middle School for years to come.

Amy Davis has been named Middle School Counselor of the Year for Henry County 2006! We’re VERY proud that Amy is an Ola Mustang!
