Susie Fancher




Susie Fancher is a veteran media specialist who was recognized as Gwinnett County Media Specialist of the Year for 2007.

Ms. Fancher is a National Board Certified Teacher who served Craig Elementary for nine years. She first joined GCPS in 1990 as a science teacher at Lilburn Middle. The Media specialist of the Year award is not the first award for Ms. Fancher. In 2001, she was Craig Elementary's Teacher of the Year.

In her nine years at Craig, Ms. Fancher has taken the initiative to start and coordinate several programs that contribute to student achievement. She implemented a schoolwide reading incentive program, designed to encourage students to practice the reading skills they learn in the classroom through independent reading. As a result, reading comprehension test scores have increased in grades three through five.

In 2007, Ms. Fancher retired from full-time work at GCPS, but she continues to serve as a part-time media specialist at Knight Elementary.
