Coralwood 2018-19 Teacher of the Year
GinGin Stratton
Virginia “GinGin” Stratton

My educational career began in August 1981 at Sky Haven Elementary in Dekalb  County.  I taught fifth, sixth and fourth grade science and social studies (along with math and reading).  I earned my Master’s Degree in Library Media from Georgia State in 1989 and joined Fulton County Schools at McNair Middle School in College Park. I worked at McNair for eighteen years as the media specialist.    After McNair I worked for four years at Evoline West Elementary in Fairburn.  While there I gained my certification in P-12 reading.   After 22 years in Fulton County, I came for an interview at Coralwood.  When I walked in the door I knew that I had truly found home.  This is my sixth year here and I plan to spend as many more as I am able.  Coralwood energizes me and I learn something new every day.  I am thankful to Dr. Castelle for having the faith in me to bring me into this family of the greatest teachers, students and parents that exist anywhere. I have thirty five years in education and I am having too much fun to stop anytime soon!  Thank you so much to the Coralwood family for choosing me to be Teacher of the Year.
