Mrs. Fort-  Instructional Support Person of the Year


I started working at the Savannah-Chatham County Board of Education in 1989 as a part-time secretary at Spencer Elementary.  I then, was promoted to the job of Information Specialist at Spencer Elementary.  After a few years, I was transferred to Mercer Middle School as the Information Specialist, where I worked for 23 years.  I am currently at Rice Creek School.  I have been on several committees over the last 30 years.  I have been on the following:

Emergency Response Team Member

PBIS committee member

MindSet Trained

Scheduling Committee

21st Century Support Staff

Attendance Committee

Testing Committee

Instructional Support Person of the Year- 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019

I enjoy working in the schools, where I have built relationships with parents and students.  Some of those students are now parents who have children that are currently at Rice Creek.  It brings joy to see how they have become great parents and to know that I made a difference in their lives by always showing care and attention to them.   They feel comforted by the knowledge that I am here and I will look after their children, just like I did for them.
