Associate professor receives two awards from GACTE
Elaine Adams, associate professor in the Department of Career and Information Studies, recently received two awards from the Georgia Association for Career and Technical Education (GACTE).
She received Teacher Educator of the Year, awarded by her peers in the Trade and Industrial Educators of Georgia (TIEGA), along with GACTE Teacher Educator of the Year, an overall statewide award. The awards recognize teacher educators who have demonstrated innovation in teacher education, leadership in improving career and technical education (CTE), and commitment to preparing teachers to deliver high-quality CTE programs.
“I am extremely proud to be presented with these two prestigious awards,” Adams said. “Preparing career and technical education teachers is my great honor and joy. I am immensely humbled that Georgia CTAE teachers believe I am deserving of these awards.”
Adams was recognized for the awards at GACTE’s 75th Annual Conference, which ran from June 12-17 in Jekyll Island, Georgia. In October 2023, her nomination will move into the regional level, and she will represent Georgia at the Association for Career and Technical Education Region II competition.
