Mix 93-1 and Half Price Books are proud to recognize outstanding East Texas teachers!

This week's recipient is Mr. Blair of Cumberland Academy Middle School in Tyler.

Mix 93-1 and Half Price Books are proud to recognize Mr. Blair, a 7th grade social studies teacher at Cumberland Academy Middle School in Tyler. Mr. Blair was nominated by a parent of one of his students who had this to say about his:

It's hard to put to words why Mr. Blair deserves this rewards really. What I can say though is this, he is warm, welcoming, exudes happiness and makes my son feel like learning is not just all about grades and assignments. Being a part of Mr. Blair's class means being immersed in social studies in a way that brings the lesson to life. Mr. Blair makes sure that parents and student alike know and understand that he is committed not to the job of teaching but to making sure that students get to really "live" and learn in his classroom through the production of skits that include props and live music that Mr. Blair goes above and beyond by performing the background music himself. It's truly a joy to be able to send my student to Mr. Blair. As passionately I am devoted to parenting and loving my child I can tell that Mr. Curtis Blair is just as passionate about helping teach and develop my sons education.

Mix 93-1 and Half Price Books are honored to recognize Mr. Blair of Cumberland Academy Middle School in Tyler as the Mix 93-1 Teacher Of The Week.
