Inspire, Engage, and Grow Employee of the Month

Very few teachers can Inspire and Engage students like Tim Chenot! In the classroom and on the field Tim Chenot challenges students to become the very best that they can become. When you enter Tim Chenot’s classroom you know right away that you have entered the engagement zone!

One nomination said, “Tim is always looking for ways to inspire and motivate his kids. His rapport with his students and colleagues goes above and beyond the normal educator. He is always looking for new and critical ways to reach and challenge his kids.”

Tim is also a Youth League football coach and he has done a great job of growing this program in our community. This year Tim has worked to incorporate John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success. It is not uncommon to hear our youth football players saying Wooden’s “Two Sets of Three” as they come off the field, “Don’t lie, don’t cheat, don’t steal and don’t whine, don’t complain, don’t make excuses.”

Tim brings great passion to everything he does. His energy and optimism are unmatched! It is without a doubt that Tim lives the mission of our school district as he Inspires, Engages, and Grows each of his Students!

Congratulations on being our September Inspire, Engage, and Grow Employee of the Month!
