Teacher For a Day

As a Teacher for a Day, Cobb County business leaders are given the opportunity to work side-by-side a Teacher of the Year at a post-secondary, Cobb County or Marietta City school for a day. Participants gain firsthand knowledge of the challenges and strengths local educators face on a daily basis.

The 2020 program will take place the week of Monday, February 3 – Friday, February 7 in both Cobb County and Marietta City Schools. The teacher and participant will connect prior to the beginning of the week and select a date that would be best for them. The program requires the commitment of a half workday.


“I had many favorite moments in the classroom with Dr. Dantzler for Teacher for a Day.  I enjoyed the reading sessions with Dr. Dantzler’s kindergarten students.  After reading a book to the students Dr. Dantzler reinforced the prior day’s lesson on letter sounds and introduced two new letters.  Along with frequent praise and encouragement, Dr. Dantzler sung a song and used pictures associated with the letter sound.  Best of all was the “thank you for visiting my class” from the students.”- Deborah Pendergrass, Georgia Power
