Law office starts teacher of the month award

by Clay Neely

The Law Offices of Shane Smith, a Peachtree City based law firm, has announced a creation of a ‘Teacher of the Month’ award to recognize standout teachers in both the Coweta and Fayette County school districts.

Beginning this month, the Peachtree City law firm will choose an outstanding local educator to applaud, recognize, and reward for their outstanding efforts. The teacher will be nominated by community members and selected by a special panel of local citizens.

The lucky recipient will be awarded with a $200 check for school supplies, as well as a $25 gift card to Partner’s Pizza.

All K-12 teachers in the Fayette County and Coweta County school districts are eligible for this new award. Nomination forms—which may be filled out by the public—are due by the 20th of each month. Nominations should be based upon the commitment, dedication, talent, and enthusiasm of the instructor.

“It is difficult to make a difference in today’s world, but our local teachers do so every day through their devotion to their students,” said Smith. “I’m thrilled that our legal practice will be honoring and celebrating the best and brightest educators in our very own community.”

To nominate a teacher or learn more about the Law Offices of Shane Smith Teacher of the Month Award, please contact Andrew Waits via telephone at 770-487-8999 or via email at andrew@shanesmithlaw.com.
