Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat
Departing teachers are remembered for their lasting contributions
As the school year comes to a close, many teachers will be leaving Taft High. Approximately 20 teachers will be either resigning from TUHS or will be retiring at the end of the school year. Even more may move to BV to fill the additional vacancies created there (three teachers have retired and one resigned). Others are not returning due to layoffs and there is still some uncertainty about whether some will return or not. Those who chose to keep their resignations or layoffs private are not included in this tribute. Our teachers have been a part of the community and have dedicated much of their own time to the school and its students. This collection of articles on these teachers who have worked here tirelessly at Taft High share what they have accomplished throughout their long careers and how much dedication they have shown. Included here are some of their favorite memories as well as their parting thoughts, feelings and opinions on TUHS.
