  • 2013-2014 TEACHER OF THE YEAR

    Mrs. Melonie Saunders

    2013-2014 Teacher of

    the Year!


    Mrs. Saunders!

    Mrs. Saunders, a fourth grade teacher at
    Doerun Elementary
    , is in her seventh year of teaching. Mrs. Saunders received her bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from Brewton Parker University. She earned her master’s degree in reading and curriculum instruction from Grand Canyon University. Mrs. Saunders is presently working on her gifted endorsement. Mrs. Saunders shared, "I feel that teaching should be a gift a person has within them that brings about excitement and passion for learning. I hope that in my last year of teaching I am able to say that I did my best in my years as an educator, and it was because of my passion for the students and others around me that kept my joy alive." Principal Chuck Jones commented, "Mrs. Saunders is the type of teacher who can be placed at any grade level, and through her exceptional teaching style, produce academic success with her students." This is Mrs. Saunders’ second time being named a Teacher of the Year.



    Balancing Responsibility and Achievement while Valuing Others

    Mrs. Kathy Bratcher is a perfect example of an employee that really Balances Responsibility and Achievement while Valuing Others on the job! Kathy takes her job very seriously. She always steps up and accepts responsibility when needed. She is extremely creative and always puts her personal touch on the decorations for plays, parent meetings and parent lunches. She demonstrates quality and efficiency in her job daily
     by having her "go-getter" attitude and motto of "doing things right the first time."  No matter what situation she is faced with, she carries herself in a very professional way.

    Kathy is the Washington coordinator for the fifth grade trip. She is very dedicated in managing this trip to make
    sure that it is such a wonderful experience for the students.

    The greatest attribute Kathy exhibits is her expectations of what the kids “can do”. If you walk into any classroom that she works with, the kids will tell you about her saying to them, “you’ve got this”. Kathy is one of the biggest cheerleaders for the students and always makes sure that they know that she is there to support them regardless of personal issues or academics. Kathy graduated from Colquitt County High School and always says, “Once a Packer, always a Packer!” She has carried this love of Colquitt County into her job and daily life. She loves this school system and loves to cheer on the kids and support them in academics and extracurricular activities. We, as a staff, see the impact she has and appreciate the fact that our students have her as an example of a person that cares deeply for them. She is truly a blessing to all of us at Doerun Elementary and is definitely a BRAVO person in our eyes!
