CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- For our Teacher of the Week, FCN spotlights Jonathan Hall at Orange Park High School.
Mr. Hall teaches band, music theory and music production. The person who nominated Mr. Hall said in her email to FCN, "Mr. Hall is a caring professional that knows how to bring out the best in the students both academically and musically. He demands a lot from his students, but also gives a lot back to them.
"He has helped the band become a contender once again against the other bands in the area. He has shown the students that even when they think they can't go on or get something that he wants them to accomplish, he pushes and nudges them to do it."
Mr. Hall said he was surprised and honored to find out he had been nominated for Teacher of the Week.
"I like teaching music and a lot of times the other stuff like discipline and determination, that is a by product of what we are doing in the classroom, because honestly music class is the only place you can learn music in the school setting," explained Mr. Hall.
He says one of the most important qualities a teacher must have is patience and he wants to be a positive influence in all his students lives.
Congratulations Jonathan Hall for being our Teacher of the Week!
