Our Teacher of The Month For:
Teacher's Name: Rob Davies
Teacher's School: West Hants Middle School
Why do you think this teacher should be the 89.3 K-Rock Teacher of the Month?
"He works at West Hants Middle School and spends a lot of time volunteering. During the hockey season he coached Avon View Girls hockey team. During the spring he is now coaching the Avon View girls softball team after school. He just returned from Ottawa where he took the students for the 2018 Canada Wide Science Fair. It’s safe to say that he is involved in all aspects of school life both during school hours and after school.
Proud to call him my friend and I hope that he is chosen as a teacher of the month.
We then got this email:
There could not be a more deserving person to receive this reward, however, I realized after speaking with Rob that the person who nominated him quoted that he coached the Avon View softball team, but he did not.
Here is a list of all of the things (plus many others I did not list) that Rob does coach or head up in his “spare” time after being a full-time, total devoted teacher to his students, a fantastic father to two young children, and heading up all the fund raising for all of the activities he runs…
Avon View Girls Hockey
West Hants Middle School Science Club through which he did just accompany a student to the 2018 Canada Wide Science Fair and took the Science Club on a trip to Dalhousie
Regional Science Fair Committee
West Hants Middle School Girls Softball
West Hants Middle School Beginner Hockey
West Hants Middle School Intramural Hockey
Both of the hockey leagues run early in the morning before school takes in through the winter. He fundraises enough money for the ice time and makes sure each participant that wants to take part has the required gear.
This really is just a small snapshot of what a wonderful individual he is. If anyone, student or staff mentions a need of any kind, he jumps at the chance to help.
I know the write up is already posted but I was hoping it might be able to be adjusted, first of all to correct the statement that he coaches AV Softball team (because he would never want to steal someone else’s glory) but also to show what he really contributes to his school and community.
We at West Hants Middle School are so blessed to have him at our school. I personally am embarrassed I did not know about this award an nominate him myself."
