High School math teacher Duane Titus serves as a mentor to new teachers and goes above and beyond to make sure his students have what they need to be successful during their remote learning. Congratulations to Mr. Titus, the December Maine-Endwell Teachers Association (META) Teacher of the Month.
New High School teacher Ben Amorese nominated Mr. Titus for the honor. “He is my mentor and has helped me ease into my transition as a new teacher in the district,” said Mr. Amorese.
When it comes to his students, “He makes sure to hold students and student athletes accountable for their work,” said Mr. Amorese. He spends time in the weight room helping students prepare for their upcoming sports seasons, he adds.
Each month (META) honors excellence in teaching within our district with the Teacher of the Month award. The award is given to a staff member who demonstrates the following leadership qualities: professionalism and excellence in and out of the classroom; commitment to the well-being of students; high ethical standards; and civic and charitable stewardship. Award winners will be nominated by their peers.
