Congratulations to Eastside High School Math Teacher Anthony Chatfield as he has received a 2015 New Teacher Assistance Grant from Georgia Power in the amount of $1,000.  The purpose of Georgia Power’s New Teacher Assistance Grant program is to reward and support some of the state’s outstanding new teachers.  Ms. Sadie Dennard of Georgia Power, recently stopped by Eastside High School to personally present the check.

According to Chatfield, one of his professors at Dalton State College nominated him for the grant, which he plans to use to purchase much needed supplies and materials for his classroom, including a classroom set of calculators.

“I am very appreciative to Dalton State College for the nomination and to Georgia Power for the grant,” said Chatfield. “I feel very honored to have received the nomination and been selected for the grant.”

“Mr. Chatfield has demonstrated a unique ability to implement sound instructional strategies in the classroom while also forging positive, motivating relationships with students,” said Eastside High School Principal Jeff Cher.
