• Glascock County parents were notified Monday afternoon of an on-going investigation into an alleged inappropriate message sent from a teacher to a student at Glascock County Consolidated School. 

    Superintendent Jim Holton said that a parent brought the matter to the school's attention Monday morning.

    "This involved a female high school teacher and an 18-year-old high school boy," Holton said. "She will not be back at school. The matter is now in the hands of the Glascock County Sheriff's Office and the Professional Standards and Practices Commission."

Students today are different than they were 20 years ago, TJA science teacher Amber Dowdy admits. And while many educators find the challenge of engaging them daunting, Dowdy says that’s one of the things she loves most about her job.
And she’s pretty good at what she does. In November, both she and fellow TJA teacher Amanda Brett were recognized as the GISA State High School and Middle School Teachers of the Year.
