Cobb names Beth Foster District Level Teacher of the Year


Osborne High School ESOL and History/Civics teacher, Beth Foster, has been named the District Level Teacher of the Year by Cobb County Board of Education during its August meeting.

Foster thought she was attending the meeting to be named Cobb Schools High School Teacher of the Year and was surprised to learn of the greater honor that was being bestowed upon her. Superintendent Chris Ragsdale announced Foster’s recognition and presented her with an award as her family looked on.

Said Ragsdale, “Beth Foster is an example of Cobb’s high-quality educators who help students overcome obstacles and succeed in school and beyond. Teachers like her are the reason why 91% of Cobb students reach the graduation stage when they attend a Cobb high school all four years.”

A Cobb County School District graduate herself, Foster returned to the district to teach over 13 years ago. Upon learning of her recognition, the Pope High school graduate said, “I love teaching at Osborne because we work as a team to help our students. Every single person in our building contributes — teachers, staff, administrators, parent facilitators, department chairs, the social worker, our cafeteria staff, and academic coaches.”

Osborne Principal Josh Morreale is proud of Foster’s recognition and highlighted her as a teacher who always meets the needs of her students as she builds strong relationships with them.

Foster was previously named the district’s high school-level Teacher of the Year before receiving the all-district award. She will now move on to compete for the title of Georgia Teacher of the Year.
