Our very own Mark Williams won the award for Teacher of the Year throughout the whole district. We are so lucky to have Mark as one of our history teachers. Mark states that, “teaching is not just the dissemination of knowledge. It is allowing a young person to open up to new thoughts and ideas. I don’t just want students to memorize facts and dates and people, but to see that they can change the way things are, and make their lives and the lives around them better. They need to develop a love of learning that goes far beyond the classroom. I hope I am a catalyst in that process.”
We think you are doing a great job and you have helped so many students develop a love of learning! Thanks Mark for all you do from all of us here at Independence High School!
