Friday, August 11th, 2017

Gov. Nathan Deal, in conjunction with the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, released “One Common Thread,” the 18th installment of the “Real Teachers Real Voices” campaign. This initiative, which highlights exceptional educators around the state, stems from feedback provided by Deal’s Teacher Advisory Committee. “One Common Thread” features Dr. Debra Russell, an educator at the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology in Rockdale County.

“We are teachers with one common thread,” said Russell. “Our common thread? We are passionate about making a difference in the life of every student that walks through our door.”
