Teacher Appreciation is the week where students have the opportunity to recognize their teachers for all their hard work. This week I would like to recognize my AP Environmental Science teacher, coach Bradley Overton.

Overton, also known by students as Coach O, teaches AP Environmental Science and Aquatics at the high school. Coach O also coaches football and softball.

Coach O genuinely cares about every single one of his students. He is always making sure that his students are doing well. There would be days where I would be having a bad day and Coach O would notice it. We would sit down and talk about it. It would always make me feel better about my day and would turn my day around. It is a nice feeling to know that one of my teachers genuinely cares about me.

Coach O has such a bright personality and is also one of the funniest people I have ever met. I would walk into his classroom and he would be sitting at his desk with the biggest smile ever. Coach O always knows how to make his students laugh. I would walk into his classroom and leave his classroom after class with a good laugh.
