After a months-long battle, Hannah Rinehart died this morning at 4:15.
Hannah Rinehart, wife of South Gwinnett math teacher Mark Rinehart, passed away this morning at 4:15 a.m. "She is celebrating," Mark wrote on a Facebook page in her honor, "and I am thankful for God allowing me to have the privilege of being her husband while she was here on this Earth.

According to family, that’s not nearly enough time, and so they are asking that the school board allow fellow teachers to donate their paid time off PTO. Mark's hope is that people will be able to donate their unused PTO to him. According to Mark, Gwinnett County policy doesn't allow that. “I would like to speak to you simply as a dad,” said Doug Johnson, Hannah's …
