Cobb Teacher Earns GaDOE Recognition

Cobb World Languages teachers highlight the quality of our staff by earning the GaDOE Teacher of Month designation.

Once again, a Cobb World Languages teacher demonstrates the high quality of our teachers by earning the GaDOE Teacher of Month designation. The GaDOE World Language Education of the Month Program recognizes world language educators at all grade levels who are making a difference in their schools and providing students with high quality academic, language, and cultural knowledge and skills. Ms. Diane Kordel, Kindergarten Dual Language Immersion teacher at Nickajack Elementary, was selected as the September 2019 Georgia World Languages Teacher of The Month. This is the third time a Cobb teacher has earned this designation.

Ms. Kordel was nominated by one of her peers in Cobb for going above and beyond her role and collaborating with other teachers to make difference and provide students with high quality academic, language, and cultural knowledge and skills. Her colleague describes Ms. Kordel as a kind-hearted professional and friend. She shared, “Ms. Kordel has made an impact in my career, making me feel eager to work and be better every day.”  Ms. Kordel also supports the district DLI team by sharing her experience, resources, and supporting new teachers. She has represented the DLI team by presenting at our state professional organization, the Foreign Language Association of Georgia (FLAG).

Mr. Patrick Wallace, World Languages and Workforce Initiatives Specialist from the GaDOE presented the recognition to Mrs. Kordel during the morning school announcements in company of the school Principal, Ms. Laura Meyer and World Languages Supervisor, Mr. Germán Suárez. Cobb County is proud to have STAR teachers like Ms. Kordel serving our students every day. The World Languages department looks forward to continuing to highlight the great talent of our World Language professionals and the support they provide to our diverse community in facilitating the development of culturally and linguistically competent global citizens.
