Jeff Corn is in his 10th year of teaching at North Boone High School. He teaches Geometry (9-12), Honors Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus. He says, “Today, the word ‘teacher’ is so much more than showing someone how to do something. Of course I do teach, but I also coach, mentor, counsel, motivate and guide students, colleagues and parents.” “Becoming a teacher was one of the best decisions of my life, as it has not only helped me grow and prosper, but has allowed me to give back to society the things I have learned and created.” “I help shape the lives of students who will run this world one day. The hundreds, if not thousands, of decisions I make each day have small ripple effects in the lives of students and other teachers. I dedicate all my time and energy in helping students and colleagues become successful. The relationships I make with colleagues, parents and students define who I am.
