Glen’s true passion shows through with his students and co-workers. He teaches 12th grade Government and Economics, but the lessons go beyond the classroom.
Glen was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a blood cancer, a couple of years ago. Co-workers say he is an inspiration for them and for the students. Through his early treatments, he still came to work – always with an uplifting attitude. When he took the next semester off to continue treatment, his students and fellow teachers made a video for him. (see below).
His strong will and desire show he loves what he does, and that, for him, it’s not just a job.
Students raised over $10,000 in funds for Glen, funds that he chose to donate to a foundation that supports the deadly disease.
