On today’s episode, we have the 2017 Georgia Teacher of the Year, Casey Bethel. Casey is the teacher we all want, and his authentic voice and love for the profession is magnified throughout this episode. We learn about his path to the teaching profession, his love of science, his work vs effort rubric, and the book that changed his paradigm to elevate his love of reading. Casey currently teaches AP Biology, Biology, and Physics at New Manchester High School in Douglasville, Georgia. Before that, he taught at Martin Luther King High School in Lithonia, Georgia. He graduated from Fort Valley State University with a degree in Biology (Pre-Med) and he received his Masters in Agronomy which is (plant genetics) from the University of Georgia. If you’re listening to this on your way to work, laying by the pool, or while you’re doing chores you’re about to be enlightened by another great leader in his field.
