GEORGIA MATH AND SCIENCE TEACHERS TO LEARN FROM AT&T

 ATLANTA, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia Gov. Zell Miller is among 16 U.S. governors and the mayor of the District of Columbia who will participate in an innovative educational program, developed and offered by AT&T, aimed at enhancing the skills of the nation's math and science teachers.
 The program, AT&T Teachers & Technology Institute, will offer middle and high school teachers the opportunity to work on their own visions of the future. To be chosen as a "Governor's Fellow" for the institute, a teacher must have demonstrated a visionary approach to math and/or science teaching.
 Full-time math or science teachers from grades 7 through 12 in any Georgia public, parochial or private school are eligible to compete. A panel of AT&T experts will select the six finalists and Gov. Miller will then select the three Governor's Fellows for the program. The other three finalists will serve as alternates in the event any of the selected candidates cannot attend the program.
 "It is our belief that sharing AT&T's knowledge of innovative technology with those who bring knowledge to our children is a corporate responsibility," said Esther Silver-Parker, assistant vice president public relations for AT&T's Georgia operations.
 The three Georgia teachers will join 48 others from 15 states and the District of Columbia for a two-week workshop featuring scientists and engineers at AT&T's Bell Laboratories in New Jersey.
 Other states participating this year include Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Over the next three years, teachers from all 50 states will compete for an opportunity to participate in the program.
 The AT&T Teachers & Technology Institute is one of many educational programs sponsored by AT&T and the AT&T Foundation, the company's philanthropic unit. AT&T programs support every educational level, from elementary to college graduate programs.
 AT&T has more than 20,000 employees working at 100 company facilities across Georgia.
