Secondary Teacher of the Year-John Fletcher

John Fletcher was named the 2016-17 Gainesville ISD Secondary Teacher of the Year. Fletcher, a GHS graduate, jumped at the opportunity to return to his hometown to teach and coach five years ago. Fletcher teaches at GJHS and coaches track, basketball, and football at both GJHS and GHS.

Fletcher stands out as an exceptional teacher by his ability to connect with the students and his tremendous energy in the classroom. As he explains, “it is not the topic that defines me as a teacher, but the delivery”. Fletcher excels at adapting lessons midway through a class once he notices that he has hit something that genuinely interests the class. “Being able to take that little nugget and connect it to the TEKS within the lesson is what makes the job both exciting and challenging,” Fletcher said.

GJHS Gym Flooring Update

As a result of flooding last year, portions of the Gainesville Junior High competition gym needed to be replaced. When the replacement took place recently, the entire floor was refinished and new paint was added to the court. These updates to the competition gym result in a fresh new look that we can all be proud of for our students.
