In honor of all teachers in our local schools, we talked with a handful of instructors in recognition of Teacher Appreciation Week May 4-8. We asked the schools for recommendations on teachers who have been involved in the schools for a number of years, and asked that they keep other candidates in mind for future years. The following segments are but a sampling of the fine educators, role models, and community influencers in our area schools. Thank you to all our teachers for your hard work.
Marc Peterson - Phillips School District
Marc Peterson is in the same classroom he once sat as a teenager facing a blackboard of scientific facts. While the classroom is the same, Peterson's role in it has changed from student to teacher.
