MASON — Two Bend Area educators have been selected as “Teachers of the Year” by members of the Wahama High School Students Against Destructive Decisions (S.A.D.D.).
Chosen were Jodie Roush on the secondary level, and Charlie Tyree, elementary. Roush is a 21-year education veteran and teaches the sciences at Wahama. Tyree has taught for nearly 10 years, and is a fifth grade teacher at New Haven Elementary School.
