One nominee spoke of McKinney’s servant leadership. “Damon’s number one priority is helping students succeed. He is a team-player that exudes positive energy and collaboration…He is extremely hard-working and always willing to go above and beyond. Damon is very dedicated to the profession of teaching.”
Another nomination form stated: “Being in Mr. McKinney’s class has taught me so much about what really matters in life and what respect and consideration really mean. He is not only an English teacher; he is a life teacher. McKinney himself expressed his passion for education and helping students that reaches beyond testing, lesson plans and daily instruction. “I enjoy working with students and watching them mature and grow as a person and as a learner, but my favorite part of teaching is connecting what we do in class to the real world and showing students that it is not just an assignment but something they will actually use in their life.”
