An Early County teacher is being recognized among the best in the state.
Michelle Peace teaches Spanish at Early County High School.
Peace says she wants to challenge her students to think globally.
She uses items she collected while overseas in her lessons along with pictures and video to take her students abroad from their desks.
"My overall goal is to inspire my students to be lifelong learners, in Spanish and in everything else," says Peace. "If they never stop learning, having the desire to learn, I think that's the most important gift we can give them."
Peace is one of 10 finalists for Georgia Teacher of the Year.
