This week, Junior Journalist Ava Trussell went with our Courteney Jacobazzi to surprise this week’s top teacher at Crawford County Elementary – Kalo Oglesby.

Oglesby teaches science at history and the school and it’s his first year teaching full time after previously being a long term substitute.

He says he loves how every day offers new experiences and lessons to share with the students.

One of his students, Maddie, wrote in to us about her awesome teacher and this is part of what she had to say.

“Mr. Oglesby likes us to have a lot of fun while learning, he has a lot of energy too. While taking notes, he plays soft music too so we don’t stress. Anytime we get in trouble in his class, he lets it go. He lives by the saying ‘life without knowing is learning how to live,’” said Maddie.

If you think you have a top teacher, write us a one-page handwritten letter to:

My Teacher is Tops
1314 Gray Highway
Macon, Ga 312311

Remember, neatness counts!
