What Our Educators are Saying

“Metro RESA was really fantastic. The information they shared was so useful in the classroom. Everyone there was so caring. Each class was full of awesome information and was laid out in a great way. I most definitely learned new information from the coursework, and it clicked for me because I could connect what I was learning with my classroom experience.”

Audrey Waters, Dance teacher at Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy


“I have learned so much during the year with GaTAPP, which has made me more confident than I had ever imagined being in the classroom. It is a lot of work, but you learn so much because they are holding you accountable and you get to apply what you learn every single day.”


Mrs. JaLynda Drumgoole, 2nd grade teacher at Hendricks Elementary School in Cobb County

“Metro RESA was a great asset. All of the official lessons and the unofficial lessons I learned helped me get me to this point.”

Jairus Hallums, Teacher of the Year at Shiloh Middle School
