Fifth-grade teacher receives honor.
Head of School Troy McIntosh, Elementary School Principal Jim Parrish, and PTF Endowment Fund representatives Jim Edwards and Glenn Williams surprised Doug Tanner at his home to share the news that he had been selected PTF Endowment Fund Teacher of the Year.
This award is given annually by a vote among peers to a faculty member who exemplifies excellence in teaching, Christian discipleship, and love for students. The PTF Endowment Fund provides a gift to the teacher as well as a place on the Teacher of the Year recognition plaque located in each school building.
Mr. Tanner has taught fifth-grade Math and Bible at WC since 2004. According to Elementary Principal Jim Parrish, “God has placed an incredible heart for kids inside Mr. Tanner. He is a teacher that truly looks at each student as an individual that God has created and Mr. Tanner strives to be able to help each student grow academically and spiritually. He is a quiet champion for his students.”
On behalf of the entire WC community, we congratulate Mr. Tanner and express our deep gratitude for his excellent service to our school.
