The Office of Adult Education at Southeastern Technical College (STC) has nominated Senecca Underwood for Outstanding Teacher of the Year 2023. She will represent STC Adult Education in March at the statewide competition in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Senecca has been an integral part of building our English as a Second Language (ESL) component of the Adult Education program,” said Susan Cross, executive director of Adult Education. “Senecca’s fluency in ESL has enabled our program to serve the large number of non-English speaking individuals in our service area.”
Underwood is also the nominating instructor for Southeastern Tech’s 2023 EAGLE delegate, Manuel Torres. In March, Torres will compete with other Adult Education students for the Exceptional Adult Georgian in Literacy Education Award at the Dinah Culbreath Wayne EAGLE Leadership Institute.
Underwood, ESL/HSE instructor with the Adult Education program in Vidalia, has been in her role for the past five years. She was an adjunct instructor for two years before becoming a full-time instructor.
“I am honored to have been selected and to be recognized for the positive impact that I make in the lives of our High School Equivalency students at Southeastern Technical College,” said Underwood.
