F. M. Golson Announces Teacher of the Year
F. M. Golson Elementary and Principal Jennifer Hawthorne are proud to announce Mrs. Deeanna Golden as Golson’s Teacher of the Year.
Mrs. Deeanna Golden is a graduate of Marianna High School and Chipola College. She also received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from Troy State. In 1990, she received her first job in Jackson County teaching fourth grade at Grand Ridge School. In the fall of 1991, Mrs. Golden was hired at F. M. Golson Elementary as a kindergarten teacher, which she still teaches to this day.
This year has been an extraordinary year for Mrs. Deeanna Golden. She was notified that she had the most visited kindergarten through second grade lesson plan on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’’ website, Illuminations. In September, the school learned that Mrs. Golden was one of three Florida finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching, which she will learn more about in 2015, and finally, Mrs. Golden was recognized by Governor Rick Scott two weeks ago at a Cabinet Meeting where she received the 2014 Governor’s Shine Award.
“Words cannot express how much I respect and admire Mrs. Golden,” says Dr. Jennifer Hawthorne. “When I observed Mrs. Golden and her colleague Ms. Vickie Plant’s presentation at this year’s state math conference, “This Ain’t Your Mama’s Math”, it was surreal. I watched as teachers from all over the state took photos of our activities, took notes of everything that was presented, and wanted our teachers’ websites. Mrs. Golden is a rock star, and it reminded me how lucky we are at Golson to work and learn side by side from her every day.”
Mrs. Golden is married to Mr. Alan Golden and has three children, Blythe, Steffin, and Kaidd Golden.
