ROSWELL, Ga. – A Hopewell Middle School teacher was named "Special Education Teacher of the Year" at the April 11 Roswell Rotary meeting.

Robert Gama, a special education teacher at Hopewell, was presented the award by Sen. John Albers on behalf of enAble of Georgia, a Roswell-based nonprofit supporting people with special needs.

"I was on cloud nine for two weeks," said Gama, a Forsyth County resident, when he found out about his award. "It means so much to be recognized by some of the parents of students I teach."

As a teacher, he said he only works with the students for a few hours each day, but parents live with the students and can see the progress their children make through their schoolwork.

"We recognize teachers who have gone over and above their duties," said Nancy Lindgren, project manager with enAble.

The teachers are nominated by parents and students from Atlanta and the surrounding counties. From that list, the Teacher of the Year is selected.

"These are the people who have the most impact on people's lives," Lindgren said.
