GWINNETT – NORTH FULTON – Timothy George, EMT-P has been named Adjunct of the Year by Gwinnett Technical College. With over 20 years of health science experience, George frequently uses simulation education tools to teach students to apply classroom learning in real-world situations.
“My philosophy is one of partnership between the student and the instructor. I often tell them, ‘I will not give up on you until you quit trying’. I believe our students come to Gwinnett Tech to make something of themselves and it is my job to guide them to that goal. I am an ‘all in’ enthusiastic teacher who is still honored and privileged to have this opportunity. One of my main goals is to try to always show students that I am here for them when needed,” stated George.
Michael Johnson, EMS program director, nominated George for the 2018 Adjunct of the Year, stating “Tim is a dedicated instructor who enjoys being in the classroom and sharing his knowledge and experience he has gained as a paramedic with Gwinnett Fire and in his current role at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta with students.”
“Being named as the Adjunct of the Year is a great honor to me. It is a sign to me to continue to look for opportunities to teach whenever possible maybe even full time one day. Most importantly I am thankful to receive this award as a representative of all the great educators on the EMS Health Sciences team,” states George.
George knew that Gwinnett Tech was a place where he could be a part of a great community of educators and be able to do what he loved, teach EMS and prepare students with experience that furthers their growth and development.
George is currently earning his Bachelors of Science in Healthcare Management from Waldorf University and holds a Paramedic Diploma from DeKalb Technical College. George teaches Emergency Medical Technician classes at Gwinnett Tech.
