About the Nominee: Beth Chandler serves as the principal of Glanton-Hindsman Elementary School (GHE). She began her career in education in 1992 as a special education teacher at Mt. Zion Elementary and Mt. Zion High School. She continued teaching special education for ten years. As a result, she learned that all students can and will achieve their goals in their own time and way. In order to extend her work beyond the classroom, she served as the special education facilitator of Carroll County Schools for 1 ½ years. As facilitator, she worked with new special education teachers and with teachers who were struggling to meet the needs of special education students. Her enthusiasm to help teachers, along with her leadership skills, helped her transition to becoming assistant principal at several schools. In December 2012, she became the principal of GHE. At GHE, Mrs. Chandler is a dedicated leader! She spends countless hours working to ensure that GHE is a premier school. She's usually the first one to arrive at the school and the last one to leave. Her time spent away from her own family is devoted to her school. Each year, she uses innovative, fun, rewarding practices to motivate students and staff members. Her mission is to ensure that every teacher and student is successful, both inside and outside of the classroom. This mission extends to the Villa Rica community. Her motto is, "We are all Family."
She proudly supports and represents purple and gold!
Mrs. Chandler changes the lives of students every day! She is a LifeChanger!
