Congratulations to our 2017-2018 School Teacher of the Year!
Ms. Jasmine Sayles, Fifth Grade Teacher
Ms. Sayles is a product of the Houston County School System. She split her high school years between Northside High and graduating from Warner Robins High School. She went on to major in Early Childhood Education at Spelman College, earning her M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Central Michigan University, her Ed.S in Curriculum and Instruction at Capella University. She recently completed her Gifted Endorsement through Houston County in conjunction with working towards her Ed.D at Argosy University. This is her eighth year of teaching, taking two years off to attain other certifications and beginning her doctorate. All of her teaching experience lies in the fifth grade, beginning in Fulton County Schools.
Ms. Sayles is the PROUD mother to an AMAZING four year old daughter, miss Jackson Nicole. On top of being a mother, teacher, and professional student, Ms. Sayles enjoys spending time with her family, golfing, serving as faux DJ and MC at school events, and being active at her church in Conyers, Ga.
Ms. Sayles loves teaching, as it was not her initial major, but the best decision she could have made during her college years. As a big supporter and believer in multicultural education, she encourages her students to take time to understand what is going on in the world around them, learning to accept differences as just that. “You don’t have to like it, but you will respect it!”
