Four Wesleyan School faculty members named GISA Master Teachers

The Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) has named four Wesleyan School faculty members GISA Master Teachers, the school announced today.

Sara Cooper (lower school science), LaShandia Hill (middle school STEM), Isiah Hill (high school science), and Katie Wischerth (high school English) were all selected after completing a detailed application process through GISA this past spring.
To be accepted into GISA’s Master Teacher program, candidates must submit a detailed application. Applicants must also submit a portfolio of three tangible examples of outstanding work related to the classroom and to sharing and collaborating with other educators. The final part of the application is an unedited video of the candidate’s classroom teaching utilizing best practices and five letters of recommendation from colleagues, administrators, parents, and students.

“We are delighted that GISA has acknowledged the hard work of these committed educators through the Master Teacher program,” said Chris Cleveland, Wesleyan Head of School. “Sara, LaShandia, Isiah, and Katie are outstanding classroom teachers and have been impacting the lives of Wesleyan students for many years. They are each deserving of this honor.”
