BHS Teacher of the Year Faculty Names 2021-22 Winner

The committee defined the BHS Teacher of the Year as “A dedicated educator who demonstrates commitment and passion for their craft. Earning the admiration of the faculty, administration, and students, this teacher challenges and engages students and is committed to their success – demonstrating a passion and joy of teaching that inspires the school community.”
In order to pick the winner, the committee created an inclusive process which involved teachers, students, and administrators. Each of the five building administrators initially nominated two teachers. Teachers and students then voted, and three finalists were chosen. Following this process, the three finalists’ names were submitted to the BHS administrative team who, as a group, chose the winner.
For this inaugural year, the three finalists were: Mrs. Chelsea Root, Mr. Christopher Sterman, and Col. John Church. The winner was announced at the BHS Pep Rally on Friday, March 25 in front of the entire school community.
Colonel Church said, “Master Sergeant Worthen and I are blessed to be teaching some amazing young people, to have strong support from the staff, faculty and families and we enjoy being a part of the BHS family.  His devotion to duty, the amazing cadets in our charge and our peers inspire me to give my best every day.”  
Congratulations to Colonel John Church, MCJROTC Senior Marine Instructor, winner of the BHS Teacher of the Year Award for 2021-22!
