Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life: My history teacher, Mr. Jerry Joyner, has been one of the best these last few years. I never liked history before taking his AP U.S. class in 10th grade, but he makes his classrooms engaging, personable and fun. I know that he cares about his students as much as we care about him!
