With the start of the school year, Principal Lavely has welcomed many new faces to the TRHS staff. With those new faces comes new qualities and attributes that will contribute to the success of TR. Lavely says, “I am very excited for the new teachers, I love them all.” With 12 new members to staff, he adds, “Every new teacher has a real desire to be here and [be] a part of our community. They are all phenomenal teachers.”  

Out of the 12 new staff additions, ten have moved from other schools. Mr. Baker came from Carolina High School; Ms. Batson (Berea High); Ms. Case (Military Magnet Academy); Mr. Cummings (Greenville High); Mr. Duty (Greer High); Mr. Evans (Goose Creek High); Mr. Nix (Greenville High); Mr. Simms (Northwood Middle); Ms. Siskar (Northwest Middle); and Mr. Wilson (Wren High).

First-year teachers include Mr. Cameron and Mrs. Dobson.  Dobson says, “Working at Travelers Rest High School is better than I thought it would be; the kids are great, the staff [is] great, and Principal Lavely is great. I

just love it!”

 

New Freshman Assistant Principal Mr. Baker agrees. “The biggest difference that I see from my previous school is that TRHS is such a community based school. Students, teachers, and the community really rally around the school to support the success of everyone.” Baker appreciates the small town feel of TR and how everyone in the community is involved.

Mr.Wilson, world history teacher and football coach, says that he’s both excited about teaching and being a part of an extracurricular activity.  When asked about the future of his career, he said that, “For right now, I want to stay in the classroom and teach to the best of my abilities and coach on the football field to the best of my abilities.”

The future is brighter than ever for TRHS, thanks to new teachers and their impact on the students.
