January 2019 Teacher of the Month: Tyler Parker

Mr. Parker doesn't assign homework over the weekend or on breaks because he understands that kids have lives and are supposed to be relaxing

February 27, 2019

 Congratulations to Mr. Tyler Parker, 9th grade English teacher at Veterans Tribute Career and Technical Academy, for being named Mercedes in the Morning's January 2019 Teacher of the Month! Mr. Parker was nominated by his student Makenna! One thing about Mr. Parker that really stood out to Makenna was how he asked each student on the first day of school to write him a letter about their life and struggles. He would later use them as reference to better help understand what the student is going through when they're having a bad day and offer to help in any way that he can. He also won't assign homework over the weekend or breaks because he "understands that kids have lives and are supposed to be relaxing." Those reasons among many others are why Mr. Parker was chosen as our first Teacher of the Month for 2019! Listen to Makenna share sweet thoughts about her teacher and break the BIG NEWS to him on the air!
