Bettye Myers Middle School faculty and staff have chosen Tamyhra McCoy as their 2021-2022 Teacher of the Year. Mrs. McCoy is in her 22nd year of teaching but has served the students at Myers for the last seven years. She currently teaches 6th, 7th, and 8th grade ELAR and 6th grade math. She graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in 1996 with a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies with certifications in English, reading, and later added a certificate in Special Education. As her teaching mantra, Mrs. McCoy’s adopted Aristotle’s quote, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Above and beyond the daily academics, Mrs. McCoy’s students know they are cared about and she’s always there for them.
