2019 Richmond County School System Teacher of the Year


Ms. Samantha Booker from Deer Chase Elementary School, was named the Richmond County School System 2019 Teacher of the Year at the Teacher of the Year banquet on October 4, 2018. 

“When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower.” Ms. Samantha Booker’s personal belief about teaching is that all children deserve an environment that promotes growth and learning, just as the flower that requires sunlight and water. Congratulations to Ms. Booker and Deer Chase Elementary!
