Teacher of the Year

Mrs. Kahdeidra Dabney Named TOTY for Suder Elementary!

Dabney In September, Mrs. Dabney was selected to represent Suder Elementary for Teacher of the year. This yearly honor is voted on by teachers and staff.

Mrs. Dabney is no stranger to Clayton County. She began her journey in 1999 as a  kindergartener at Mt. Zion Elementary. She matriculated to Roberta. T. Smith Elementary, Adamson Middle, and then Rex Mill Middle. She graduated in 2012 from North Clayton High. While in school, she volunteered at Smith and eventually became an Activity Leader for the After-School Enrichment Program. Assisting students with the completion of homework, revealed that many young learners struggled with basic reading and literacy skills. After graduation, she continued her studies at Clayton State University where she obtained a Bachelors in English with a Writing Concentration in 2015. Life-long learning and reaching beyond the stars has always been her motto in life. In 2015, she became an Interrelated Paraprofessional. In this capacity, she sought to bridge learning gaps for young learners by instilling a sense of self-efficacy. This enabled students to see the relevance in learning to help them learn in a forward trend. Again realizing that many students were below grade level in reading and literacy, she was determined to reach these learners. In just two months, she took the necessary examinations to become a teacher through Teacher Academy for Preparation and Pedagogy.  Since, she has obtained a Reading, and Teacher Support and Coaching endorsements. She has also obtained a Masters in Elementary Reading and Literacy from Walden University and is in pursuit of a Specialist degree in Elementary Education. She currently helps Kindergartners become early and emergent readers.
