Times-Herald | In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, Georgia State School Superintendent Richard Woods visited Newnan High School (NHS) teacher Barbara Landreth, who is one of the 10 longest-serving teachers in Georgia.
'I'm really glad to be able to come here and talk with you,' said Woods.
Landreth has been teaching at NHS since 1961. She first taught ninth and 10th-graders. She later added yearbook and switched to 11th grade English.
Woods' visit was a surprise for her, as NHS Principal Chase Puckett told her he had some visitors he wanted her to meet and show around the school.
'I'm glad I am able to meet you,' she told Woods.
Woods spent time talking with Landreth about her teaching career and what changes she had seen in education throughout it.
