Mr. Theodore ‘Teddy’ Carter was a long time coach, mentor, para-professional and campus supervisor who served Chamblee Charter High School for thirteen years.  During his tenure, he fulfilled multiple roles with dignity and excellence as a friend, supporter and life coach to countless Chamblee students and staff over the years.

Mr. Carter passed on May 7, 2015 at the age of 58.  In the aftermath, members of the school community came forward in droves to memorialize and honor him.  The depth and scope of his impact on so many was fully revealed after his passing.  Between May and June 2015, a petition was created by members of teh school community in which those who signed it indicated their positive and affirmative support for the naming of the Chamblee Charter high school gymnasium in Coach Carter’s honor.
