Top Teacher--Carol Ayers

Carol Ayers Carol Ayers

High school is a stepping stone to the future, and Screven County's Carol Ayers has been getting students ready for the real world for almost three decades.

It's back to reality for the students in her family consumer science class at Screven County High School. Her job is to bring a dose of the real world into the classroom.

"I think it's so important to know how a child grows, to help them be the best they can be," she said.

Getting the best out of her students is Ayer's dream. She's been teaching for 28 years and says every day it's a blessing to be around her students. "In my heart, it was always what I was meant to do. I'm passionate about my job, I love it. My family says you're never going to retire from teaching. Maybe I won't. I love this high school, and this community."

Student Willana Pelote told us, "She's a kind hearted person, I love being in her class, we do fun stuff."

"I feel so passionate about what they learn in these classrooms," said Ayers. "Work ethics. It's so important to be a good person. It will take you a long way. Along with the skills and information they need to learn."

Carol Ayers, this week's WTOC Top Teacher.
