Mr. Denryter is one of Tower’s newest teachers, being hired at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year to teach some of our gym classes.
His favorite thing about teaching at WWT is “the inclusiveness of the school and student body.” He loves seeing the willingness to help out, and is also impressed by Tower includes our differently abled students and helps them navigate the school.
His favorite class to teach is team sports because it “builds important principals of collaboration” which is needed for students to be successful in many things throughout their lives.
Mr. Denryter became a teacher because “life is all about building meaningful relationship and foundations for success.” High school plays a big role in this and he believes teachers should make the community a better place. He says that “fewer people make a greater impact [on students] than teachers and coaches.”
