Westfield High School English teacher Denver Wade was nominated as the Edge Guys Heating and Cooling January Teacher of the Month. Wade was nominated by student Jaden Cruse. As a reward, Cruse won a pizza party for his class, courtesy of Papa John’s, and Wade received a $50 Visa gift card from the Edge Guys, Current’s Teacher of the Month sponsor.

Here is Jaden’s winning essay:

Teacher of the Month

The second trimester at Westfield High School didn’t start too long ago, and as a freshman, it has been a different experience for me. I’m still not used to only five classes with longer time lengths. I lose my focus in that long of a timespan, but Mr. Wade has helped me tremendously. Mr. Wade never fails to make class interesting. English has never been too hard for me, and I never really liked English, but Mr. Wade has changed that. He makes me enjoy English and have fun in school. I have learned so much in his class, and it has only been a few weeks. Mr. Wade deserves Teacher of the Month for his humor, positivity and sheer intelligence.

Students in grades K-12 are invited to enter Current’s March Teacher of the Month contest. Participants should send a 100-word essay explaining why their teacher should be named Teacher of the Month.
