Battle selected as STC Adult Education 2023 Teacher of the Year

In FY2022, Battle had 70% measurable skills gains with her students at Fort Stewart’s Army Education Center in Hinesville, Ga., setting the standard for these results in the program and throughout the state.

Battle has been an adjunct math instructor for the College since 2017. Previously she was a math instructor for Liberty County High School. She has also worked as a math tutor for Youth Challenge in Fort Stewart, Ga. She has a master’s in education from Armstrong Atlantic State University with a major in middle grades education and minor in mathematics.
