Along with McKnight, the other members are 2015 MCSD Teacher of the Year Sheryl Green of Jordan Vocational High School, Sendreka Lakes of the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce, Allen McMullen of McMullen Funeral Home, Daniel Parker of Coldwell Banker, Theresa Robertson of Outdoor Events, Gwen Ruff of Columbus Water Works, Mike Venable of Columbus and the Valley/Valley Parent magazines and David White of Troy University-Phenix City.Asked why the committee selected Alexander, Ginther and Larkin as the finalists, McKnight told the Ledger-Enquirer, “You could go with any of the top 10. I mean, they are all such strong teachers. But I think what struck most of the committee is that these three teachers are very vociferous about being continual learners, not only in what they learn from their students but their deep desire and need to push themselves to learn more, whether it’s about pedagogy or how you use data or how kids learn, so they can be even better teachers.”The finalists also “take data analysis to the nth degree,” McKnight said. “They talked very specifically in their interview and their application about how they use data to change their instruction, depending on what their students are and are not learning. They customize it as much as humanly possible.”In its 21-year history, MEEF has awarded educators more than $2.1 million through the Teacher of the Year, Harvard Fellows and other programs or grants, McKnight said.What:Muscogee Educational Excellence Foundation gala, including the announcement of the Muscogee County School District 2017 Teacher of the Year.When: May 4, 6 p.m. reception, 6:45 p.m. dinner and program.Where: Columbus Convention & Trade Center, 801 Front Ave.Tickets:$40, on sale April 10-14 at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts box office, 900 Broadway.Monday, March 27, 2017
