Georgia Charter Schools Association salutes Diane Strickland, an instructor at Mountain Education Charter High School’s Lumpkin site.
“She goes above and beyond for every student that steps in the door. Students request to be in her class, and we also have students transfer in just to have her as a teacher,” says Sydney Sanford, public information officer for Mountain Education Charter High School. “Diane is an amazing instructor of many subjects ranging from English to Spanish. She has a true passion for teaching and helping students learn. She strives to make a difference in our students’ lives. Diane actually taught me when I was in school, and now I have the privilege of working with her at MECHS.”
