Monica Terrell running for Coweta BOE

by Celia Shortt

Coweta resident Monica Terrell, Ed.S., announced this week her candidacy for the Coweta County Board of Education.

Terrell is running for the District 1 seat currently filled by Amy Dees.

Terrell is an educator with more than 10 years of experience. In Coweta, she taught at Eastside Elementary School. Her other teaching experience was obtained in Fulton, Troup, Meriwether and Douglas counties.

“Although I have been a resident of Coweta for six years, my family has been a part of this county for many years,” Terrell said. “I have been married to my husband (Render) for 19 years. We have three girls who are students in District 1.”

Currently, Terrell is a housewife and helps the Coweta School System by serving as chairperson of East Coweta High School’s Council, and president of Lee Middle School’s PTA, as well as school council.

“It is time to restore faith in public education,” Terrell said. “Parents do want to be active participants in their child’s education. Teachers want freedom to teach. Administrators are willing to try new ways to show that student achievement is top priority.”

Terrell plans to win the election by “continuing to work within the system to help make realistic changes in a step-by-step process.”

“It is time to restore the community’s faith in public education by enhancing student achievement, communication, and technology,” she said.

To join her campaign or find out more, contact Terrell at 678-326-2436.
