Congratulations to our September Teacher of the Month, Matthew Bishop
 Here is a quote from one of the students that nominated him.....
"Mr. Bishop never fails to make sure we are learning the content over memorizing for the test then forgetting it. He always does a great job of thoroughly explaining the topic and giving us many avenues of success!
He is always willing to joke with us and is such a bright spot in my day.
My favorite teacher and class, 100%."
