Top Teacher: Inga Cashon

By Brooke Kelley - bio | email

BRYAN COUNTY, GA (WTOC) - Many educators focus on one subject or grade level, but the top teacher you're about to meet is an expert at two very different subjects.

Bryan County High School where students are thrilled to see their favorite teacher getting the recognition she deserves.

"I teach hands on activities, and I teach them how to stretch we explore possible career options and things like that," said Cashon.

Cashon teaches broadcast communication in the morning, but in the afternoon switches gears by teaching engineering.

"It's hard at times, it's stressful especially with a weekly news shows and sending students out with information we need and have them video different things but it's worth it in the end," said Cashon.

A Georgia Southern University graduate, Cashon has only been in the classroom for three years, but you wouldn't know it. She takes her time with students. Hunter Bragg said he appreciate's all her help.

"She's a very good teacher she comes in with a good attitude and she really explains stuff to us and she goes in depth with the lessons and she shows us how to do it instead of teaching and telling us how to do it," said Bragg.

Brandon Eason nominated Cashon. He said she's a great role model.

"She's always helping me improve my skills [and with the] programs we use on the computer, and she's always there to make sure I am succeeding at it," said Eason.

Cashon said she's happy to help students achieve their career goals.

"I enjoy working with the students and I enjoy seeing them grown and if this is where I am 30 years from now, I'll be perfectly fine with that," said Cashon.

Making sure her students are doing well and taking that extra time whenever they need it is one the many reasons why Cashon is a WTOC Top Teacher.
