Tyler teaches Second Grade at Gordon Parks. He got his teaching license through an online Masters Program through Kansas State University. This will be his first official year as a full time teacher. He student taught last year at Gordon Parks and he was a boxing coach for the last five years. Through boxing he grew to love working with kids and teenagers helping them achieve their goals and make a difference in their life.
Before Gordon Parks he worked at a clinical research company for three and a half years in addition to being a boxing coach. He also worked at a bank for two years and a news station for a little over a year. He was born and raised in Kansas and for the last three years has lived in Missouri.
Tyler says: “I'm most looking forward to continuing where we left off last year in building relationships with our students. I was lucky to student teach in the same grade that I will be teaching this year so I will be familiar with how things work at that level. I also was lucky to finish the last two weeks last year as a substitute teacher for first grade. So I was able to get to know the students I will be getting this year.”
