2017 Teacher of the Year
A Big Congratulations goes out to Mr. Kerry Reeder, Williams Field Teacher of the Year. Kerry is an extremely hard working, and committed, member of the Black Hawk Nation, and is more than deserving of this recognition. In addition to being a gifted classroom teacher, who builds positive and productive rapport with students in his AVID, Psychology, and Sociology classes, Kerry makes huge contributions outside of the classroom, as the freshman football and varsity softball coach, to positively impact the entire student body. Teaching Professionals like Mr. Reeder embody the Higley Unified School District mission: Connect, Engage, and Inspire. Thank you Kerry for all you do for Williams Field High School, and the Black Hawk Nation.
