Cobb Teacher of the Year Beth Foster

Osborne High School teacher Beth Foster, pictured above with her family, is the Cobb County School District’s Teacher of the Year.

Beth Foster, a Cobb County School District graduate who returned to the district to teach over 13 years ago, has been named the district’s Teacher of the Year.

Foster teaches ESOL and history/civics classes at Osborne High School, and was previously named the district’s high school-level Teacher of the Year before receiving the all-district award.

“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,” Foster, a graduate of Pope High school, said.

The district also recognized elementary-level Teacher of the Year, Dr. Darline Douangvilay of City View Elementary School and middle school-level Teacher of the Year, Michelle Gottenberg of Mabry Middle School.

Foster will move on to compete for the title of Georgia Teacher of the Year.
