Teacher Tuesday: May 29, 2018
It’s hard to know where to begin when talking about Brian Weaver, this week’s #TeacherTuesday who was also featured on FOX 29 Good Day Philadelphia this morning. A social studies teacher for 10th through 12th graders at Central Bucks West HS, he has also coached baseball, football and tennis for his 11 years at the school and serves as the PA announcer for football and other sports. Each program qualified for the district playoffs multiple times, and the tennis team won four straight league titles. Brian loves it and says, “I realize that the kids are so much more than the 90 minutes they spend with me each day.”
He adds, “In public education we say to the kids, ‘Here’s a school, a library, a variety of classes, and arts and sports. Learn everything you can and find what you’re passionate about. And don’t worry about the bill — it’s on us.’” And he adds, “We don’t offer education to the highest bidder. We educate every student who walks through our doors and we don’t ask them for a paycheck.”
Let us know what other teachers make you say “wow,” and we’ll profile them in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday post.
