Upper School Teacher of The Year
Georgia Moreau was born in 1963 in Houston, Texas. She went to Oral Roberts University where she began to major in vocal performance. During college, she sang in the choir and played piano. She loved music! It was her college Spanish professor who opened her eyes to a career in Spanish. At the end of her freshman year, her professor convinced her to take a trip to Spain. She spent a month studying the culture, architecture, and language and she loved it. After her trip, she changed her major to Spanish literature. After she graduated, she got married and had children. It wasn't until her friend asked her to substitute that she thought she might want to be a teacher. Her family encouraged her to go back to school and get the qualifications to teach. She has taught in several public and private schools in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. She has been teaching Spanish for 34 years. She said she was so honored to be chosen as teacher of the year and to be recognized for her hard work. She thanks God every day for His many blessings and aims to glorify Him in her work.
