2008 Teacher Winner
School: Fred Armon Toomer Elementary School, Third-Grade
Project: “Cougars Go Green!”
Ms. Dosmann’s project used an implementation guide from the Keep Georgia Beautiful organization to start a recycling program at Toomer. Ms. Dosmann created a “green team” where students and faculty members had the opportunity to actively participate in an authentic problem-solving situation, which would potentially reduce the amount of Toomer’s paper waste by 70%.
