Letitia Daly, a teacher at Middle Georgia Christian School for the last 9 years, is this week's "My Teacher is Tops" winner.
"She's truly a woman of God," says her student Naijul Day, who wrote a letter to 13WMAZ. "She is very much appreciated. She has a simple way of helping us understand a difficult subject."
Daly teaches all subjects in the 6th grade and her favorite is Math. But she says learning goes beyond the textbook.
"I just love the fact that we are able to relate to our students on an everyday level. We get to teach them all about God and how much God loves them, and teach them that they are unique and special," Daly says.
Daly is a member of the Church of Christ, which is what led her to work for the school affiliated with that group. "I wanted her here," says school director Stan Frank. He says "her warm personality came across" during her interview 9 years ago.
Before coming to Macon, Daly grew up in St. Petersburg, FL, and graduated from Florida A&M University, and later working as a teacher in Nashville.
13WMAZ Junior Journalist Reese Waters was on hand to surprise her with her My Teacher is Tops Award.
