The halls are full of new faces this year. Some that may have gone unnoticed are the teachers.

Seven teachers were hired for the 2014-15 school year including a new Spanish teacher, a strength and conditioning coach, band director, and business teacher. This group has noticed numerous things about the school and the community. For some it is their first year teaching, and for others it’s just a change in scenery. One of the many is new Spanish  teacher, William Green.

 “I love it here. I love that the administration trusts us that we are going to do the work that we are hired to do, we are going to be great teachers,” Mr. Green said.

These teachers are trusted to do a very difficult task. They are expected to educate students in more than just a subject, but teachers are also entrusted to provide valuable life lessons as well. All of these teachers are expected to be someone that students can look up to as well as learn from. They are expected to be role models.

“I had the opportunity to be here in January and I thought about it and I decided to come back. I loved it here. Everyone is important, everyone is valuable,” Mr. Green said.

Mr. Green is just one of the several new teachers on campus this year. Kami Burch, the new business teacher, started her first year teaching in the Argyle school district. She is teaching several business classes this year including principle of business, business law, and accounting.

 “This is my first year of teaching.”Mrs. Burch said. “I love it here. I would say it’s very welcoming. I would say the students seem to be very respectful which is for me number one in all aspects of life.”

Another new teacher at the high school is Matt Jordan, M.Ed., CSCS, the new strength and conditioning coach. Coach Jordan came from a school  of about two thousand students and considers himself a “Sports Performance Coach.”

“I like the small town feel,” said Coach Jordan. “Dealing with small numbers is a lot easier. I look forward to being here. I want Argyle to be our home.”

The new assistant band directer, Asa Burk has worked at several schools before arriving here at Argyle, and like the other new additions to the Eagle staff is excited about the upcoming year.

“Argyle has a great reputation,” Mr. Burk said. “They say kids are kids everywhere you go, but kids are special here.”
