Prior to joining the Georgia Council on Economic Education in
July 2019, Angie Battle had been a classroom teacher for 26
years, serving students with a broad range of needs and
backgrounds in grades 4-8. To better help her
students, she acquired her Reading Endorsement and Gifted
Endorsement through Middle Georgia RESA. She is now using her
successful experience in the classroom to help other teachers in
her role as Program Manager for GCEE.
In addition to her classroom responsibilities, Angie served on Houston County’s social studies curriculum writing team for seven years. She has worked with numerous educational organizations and has a statewide reputation for delivering engaging presentations, writing creative lesson plans, and sharing her passion for education. She has been the recipient of her school level Teacher of the Year award twice as well as the GCEE Economics Teacher of the Year in 2014 and the Gwen Hutcheson Outstanding Educator award in 2018.
Because of her love of Star Wars, Angie firmly believes May the Fourth should be a designated federal holiday.
