"Teachers from across West Tennessee came to Dyer County High School Thursday afternoon to view the school’s STEM and Agriculture program. WestTeach is a program through the University of Tennessee at Martin that gathers teachers from around the region who, “aspire to stay in the classroom, but want to be a leader in their school.” These teachers were given a student led tour which began in Dyer County’s STEM Lab with a presentation from STEM instructor, Taylor Ricks. Ricks said, “We’re preparing our students for jobs and careers that don’t even exist yet. Here in our STEM program we focus on improving our students in the four C’s. Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, and Critical Thinking.” Following the presentation the teachers walked around and interacted with several students currently in the program. Afterwards the teachers were brought to the school’s theatre where FFA officers presented a slideshow highlighting some of the aspects of the program including the live animal barn, green houses, and garden. Every day principal Laura Brimm always closes her morning announcements with the phrase, “Let’s do our best and be our best” and this was an opportunity for the school to show off some of the best of Dyer County." Thank you to student, Gabriel Jackson, and The State Gazette for the great article!
