Coach McQuarys Details of Teaching

Coach McQuary teaches 9th Grade. He puts in about 50-60 hours per week not including his coaching hours. He believes it takes a ton of self motivation to be a teacher. The biggest challenge for him is staying on target with the requirements set forth by the district. However the biggest reward for him is having the oppurtunity to see students achieve and succeed. He's been teaching Biology for over 20 years. And his classroom is a very inviting environment.
