Student Nomination Story
I think I can speak for every kid who has taken his class when I say he makes everyone feel included. He is the perfect example of what a teacher should be. He listens to everyone, he genuinely cares for everyone and makes sure to reach out if you need someone. Even situations he’s not directly involved in. He made sure I felt comfortable with my identity and made it known he was there for me whenever I needed him. He shows pure love for his students. I’ve never met a student who didn’t like or even love him. That’s why he won best teacher of the year award in the district. In having this open relationship with his students he was able to keep his class under control and improve as a teacher by making learning engaging.
