HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Coker College alumna Marie Mascio, class of 2006, has been named the Teacher of the Year for Meadowbrook Elementary School in Augusta, Ga. for the 2010-11 school year. Mascio received this most prestigious honor at the annual Richmond County School District Teacher of the Year Banquet earlier this month in Augusta.

“I am extremely honored to have received this award,” said Mascio. “It is hard to believe that I have received this award after teaching for just three years. Some teachers are never even nominated.”

A fifth grade teacher at Meadowbrook, this is the second time in three years that Mascio has been nominated for this award by her fellow teachers.

“I have learned a great deal in my four and a half years of teaching which helped me grow as an educator,” she said. “But it was Coker College that gave me the knowledge and attitude to never give up no matter the situation. My experiences in the Education Department gave me some great ideas that I have taken, used and made to fit me as a teacher. I am very thankful for all the professors at Coker who helped me get to where I am today.”


Coker College readies undergraduates for personal and professional success through a distinctive four-year program that emphasizes a practical application of the liberal arts as well as hands-on and discussion-based learning within and beyond the classroom.
