FEATURE FRIDAY - Robert McGuire - District Instructional Technology Support
Did anyone have Mr. McGuire as a 2nd-grade teacher? Mr. McGuire has worn different hats in the district over the years. He taught 2nd grade for 26 years, worked in the tech department for seven years, and part-time as instructional technology support for the past 11 years. He has been in the district for 44 years in total! He loves to travel and work in the yard. Mr. McGuire said, "I've been to a lot of schools giving workshops, and none can match the Monett family. When one of us hurts, the whole community hurts. We spent 11 months in St. Louis for health reasons, and the support we received is off the charts. There's no place like home."
Let's show him our appreciation for the many years of dedication and service to Monett Schools by leaving a comment or hitting the LIKE/LOVE button!
