Priscilla George had a drive and passion for meeting the needs of students and focused much of her career on gifted and high-ability learners. She instructed gifted middle-school students in five Chattanooga area schools before transferring to Dalton, Georgia. She taught elementary students for Dalton Public School and became the district gifted coordinator. A major accomplishment during her tenure as gifted coordinator was the creation of a gifted resource center, C3, for elementary gifted students. She also found immense joy and fulfillment in directing plays at City Park Elementary School.

During her time with Dalton Public Schools, she volunteered to support gifted learners around the state through her involvement with the Georgia Association for Gifted Children (GAGC). She was recognized as the GAGC Gifted Teacher of the Year and served in many leadership positions with GAGC, including historian, president (1999-2000) and conference chair. She also found time to teach gifted endorsement classes.

While Priscilla’s navigational sense of direction led to journeys filled with laughter and usually required extra time, her sense of direction for what was best for gifted students was excellent and forward thinking. She was instrumental in the movement led by Georgia to use multiple criteria to make qualification for gifted services more equitable and inclusive. She retired after 40 years in education. Priscilla’s dedication to her students and fellow teachers had an impact too deep and too wide to measure. Her joy for life and her desire for excellence was always present. She was treasured by staff, students, friends, and community members around both Tennessee and Georgia.
