Teacher of the Month: Paul Boone
Thursday, March 31, 2011
Congratulations to Paul Boone, Eudora Chamber of Commerce Teacher of the Month for March! Boone teaches seventh grade reading at Eudora Middle School. He has been a teacher for 23 years, all in Eudora.
"The most rewarding aspect of teaching is seeing students get excited about reading and sharing this excitement with others," he said. "It is also rewarding to see students continue to develop their passions in and out of the classroom."
Over the years, Boone has served on the district's professional development council, school site council and curriculum committees. He also coaches cross country and track at Eudora High School and is a Fellowship of Christian Athletes sponsor at EMS.
His career goals include continuing to develop ideas to get students excited about books and making reading a part of their daily lives.
Boone and wife Melissa have a daughter, Mallory. He is the son of Ross and Sharon Boone, Quinter, Kan., and Jean Dougan, Independence, Mo.
