Mr. Berard of Fossil Ridge High School was nominated for Teacher Tuesday by no less than three students and their families. When we get that kind of response, that is a teacher that deserves to win. Mr. Berard has been a force in the music department, transforming the Fossil Ridge band program to one of the top organizations in the state and country. Their Wind Symphony, under his direction, was recently recognized as one of the top 18 high school concert bands in the USA by "Music For All." But it's not just the awards and accolades that make Mr. Berard deserving of Teacher Tuesday. He is known for making a continual impact on his student's lives, well after they leave his class, and move on with their education and careers.
