New Teacher Spotlight: Tyler Napier

(Franklin) — The Heard County school system is releasing a personal bio for several new faculty members who will begin teaching at Heard County for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.

The fifth in this series comes from new English teacher and coach at HCHS, Tyler Napier.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more personal bios from other new faculty members.

I am from Roanoke, Alabama. I graduated from Woodland High School in 2011, and my college journey started at Southern Union State Community College (SUSCC).

I continued my college journey at Jacksonville State University. My study focused on English Language Arts (grades 6-12).

The secondary education program at JSU properly equipped future teachers for success, and I am hoping to bring what I have learned there to my teaching at Heard County High School.

Along with teaching senior literature, I am coaching linebackers for the high school football team at Heard County.

Teaching and coaching have always been a career goal for me due to the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of young people.

I plan on using my college experiences to guide and advise seniors on time management, study habits, and successful routes to take.

My interests outside of teaching and coaching focus around my family and friends. We spend time on the lake, camping out, and having cookouts. I personally enjoy reading, fishing, and anything competitive.

This career choice was cemented when I saw a former teacher and coach impact the lives of kids who did not have someone at home to guide them, and I decided then that is how I want my students to look back and see me.

I am excited and blessed to start this teaching journey at Heard County High School. I am looking forward to meeting the students and educators.

Here’s to hoping I can have the same impact on Heard County that I believe it will have on me. #OneBraveNation
