We are pleased to announce Mr. Matt West, 7th-12th grade English teacher at Gaylesville School, is our February 2021 Teacher of the Month for the Cherokee County area, in partnership with WEIS Radio.
Mr. West explained his desire to be a teacher started because he saw it as a great career. He recalls the great memories from his childhood as an inspiration to pursue this path. Mr. West shared that the most rewarding part of his job is the positive relationships that he gets to create, all while helping students prepare to succeed in life.
Mr. West makes learning fun by integrating movement and music into his lessons. He believes that one of the most challenging elements of educating today comes from motivating the unmotivated.
He encourages the community to get involved in their children’s life in the form of whatever their interests may be. As a community, the more involved we are, the better the children will be for it! We agree, Mr. West.
Congratulations and thank you for all you do for the future of our communities.
