2014 Master Teacher Application is open!
  Become a Georgia Master Teacher
  Every year, Georgia recognizes its best teachers. These professionals receive a Master Teacher designation on their certificates, identifying them as educators who have positively influenced student achievement in the classroom.
Be Honored..
Educators built and tested the Georgia Master Teachers program, and they continue to refine it, making sure that unlike a lot of teacher-recognition programs, it's not a popularity contest, and it's not based on seat time in the classroom. You are certified as a Georgia Master Teacher based on the clear criterion of your students' achievement.
Be a Leader..
Georgia Master Teachers gather to share knowledge, skills, and best practices of Leadership Institutes that focus on enhancement and refinement of instructional practices.
Be Heard..
As a Master Teacher, you'll be part of the go-to group for insights, actions, reactions, and recommendations in education. Master Teachers are frequently invited to serve in local, state, regional, and national education groups as the voice of Georgia educators, and as influential professionals in their communities.
Be of Help..
Georgia's Master Teachers help build better schools by mentoring new teachers and coaching peers.
To earn the Georgia Master Teacher certificate, you must have at least three years of experience in the classroom on a Georgia Clear Renewable Certificate, and evidence that links classroom instruction to your students' achievement and progress.

Applying is easier than ever, simply click on the links for Application, the school level, the grade level, and the specialty group you teach. Then follow the step-by-step instructions that lead you through the process of supplying your personal information and gathering supporting evidence of achievement for the appropriate academic period.
