Remember to thank a teacher during Teacher Appreciation week, May 7th to the 11th.
A theme that continued to pop up in our #TeacherTuesday series was how public schools and public school educators teach much more than the basics – they teach students how to be good citizens, inspire self-confidence and motivate them to become life-long learners. To better tell that story, the CAPS team brought one of our #TeacherTuesday stories to life.
We invited eight students of Scott Swindells, a 10th grade English teacher at North Penn HS, into the school’s AV studio to talk about him. On camera, they told us what made him their favorite teacher and what they learned beyond literature. And they all had something to say about his Man Bun.
After we interviewed his students, we invited Scott to the studio under the guise of an interview about his teaching style. Little did he know that he would be presented with a collection of messages from some of his current and former students. He truly enjoyed hearing their stories and was humbled by their heartfelt thanks. It was clear that his mission goes far beyond teaching them English and that his goal is to connect with students to help them succeed in life.
Mr. Swindells and his students are textbook examples of what makes Bucks and Montgomery counties’ public schools so special.
Each week, we profile a Bucks or Montgomery public school teacher on our Facebook page in our #TeacherTuesday feature. The diverse backgrounds and strengths of these educators, and the subjects they teach, demonstrate that there is something for everyone in our public schools.
