Sandra McQueen, Educator at Georgia State University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in teaching.
The craft of teaching is always growing and evolving with the efforts of educators like Dr. McQueen, currently an instructor of early childhood education at Georgia State University. Since 1989, she has also worked as a curriculum developer with the Atlanta Board of Education, as well as a number of industry and civic roles to shepherd the growth of education in Georgia. Dr. McQueen was selected as 1985 Teacher of the Year of the Sutton Middle School, where she taught English as a second language.
Dr. McQueen didn’t start out to be an educator, but as a director of Christian education at the Rock Spring Presbyterian Church in Atlanta. The education degrees were always secondary to her work, but she had a reputation as the neighborhood babysitter, and soon discovered she was in the education field all along. With positions in the public schools opening up, Dr. McQueen fell into her natural role. She had already accrued a BA from the Presbyterian College, Clinton of South Carolina and an MA from the Presbyterian School of Christian education. Dr. McQueen became certified as a teacher with the state of Georgia, and later earned a PhD from Georgia State University to take part in shaping the curriculum in her state.
As an important member of the Georgia teaching community, Dr. McQueen has contributed to many civic societies, and is still a member of the Justice for Women in Atlanta, as well as the Rock Spring Presbyterian Church, the refugee resettlement efforts of the Greater Atlanta Presbytery, the Atlanta Interfaith Sisterhood, and the Six-Star Refugee Partnership. She was a named a Fulbright scholar in 1990 and continues to assist other scholars as a board member with the early childhood department of the Georgia Fulbright Association.
