Teacher of the Month

The February Teacher of the Month is Glenn Fuhrmann. Mr. Fuhrmann teaches US History at GHS and has been teaching at GISD for 20 years, and a total of 25 years in education. He plays an integral role at GHS, not only in his own classroom, but as the head of the History department. The relationships he has with the students and staff at GHS is incredible.

Since Mr. Fuhrmann was out sick and unable to attend the February Board meeting, his Teacher of the Month spotlight video will be viewed for the first time at the March board meeting so he can be celebrated properly.
