The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Angela Williamson on Saturday became the first APS educator to have her job reinstated. She appeared before the tribunal in the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test cheating scandal.
In tears after the decision, Williamson said she knew she was innocent and looked forward to getting her life back after a draining process.
State investigators say that Williamson prompted students during the CRCT test to change their answers while she was a teacher a Dobbs Elementary in 2008 and 2009.
Her lawyer Gerald Griggs says they will consider suing the district to reinstate her name.
