The GoTeachKY campaign to recruit the next generation of educators has partnered with 10 teacher ambassadors across the state to help promote the teaching profession.

Ambassadors were selected from a pool of applicants who answered the call for teachers interested in supporting this new statewide initiative. These ambassadors have three goals:

  • Communicate with and inspire students in high school and college to consider teaching as a career;
  • Communicate with potential and current teachers to positively capture the rewards and opportunities associated with a career in teaching; and
  • Support and promote the central focus areas, programs and organizations of GoTeachKY, such as Educators Rising and the Teaching and Learning career pathway.

The 2020 GoTeachKY Ambassadors are:

  • DeeAnna Albright, Carter County schools
  • Erin Ball, Scott County schools and the 2020 Kentucky Teacher of the Year
  • Bruce Blanton, Shelby County schools
  • Jennifer Emberton, Simpson County schools
  • Miles Johnson, Jessamine County schools
  • Ashley Judd, Jackson County schools
  • Theresa McDavid-Dobbins, Boyd County schools
  • Christine Meisberger, Scott County schools
  • Noraa Ransey, Calloway County schools
  • Cathy Thrasher, Daviess County schools

Each ambassador has a unique story that brought them into the teaching profession. These stories will be featured in GoTeachKY’s social media campaign as real-life examples of the different pathways available to future educators. Ambassadors also will represent GoTeachKY at career fairs and other speaking engagements. They will serve through June.
