CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - Georgetown Elementary School third grade teacher Sarah Lucas is one of eight statewide winners for Innovation in Teaching.

The announcement came from Gov. Nathan Deal. Lucas' project on ocean pollution had students crafting 3D models, building computer graphs, leading discussions and quite a bit more.

They were all very engaged and excited, just like their Armstrong educated, and Savannah native, teacher.

"I went to Calvary," Lucas said. "I still talk to many of my elementary, middle and high school teachers, so they were all very inspiring, and we had fun. Fun is the key!"

Lucas gets a $2,000 stipend and Georgetown gets a $5,000 grant for implantation of Georgia's Instructional Standards. Georgia Public Broadcasting will video Lucas' classroom and share it with teachers statewide.
