John Condon has been named one of two Camas-Washougal Chamber of Commerce Teachers of the Year. He teaches science at Skyridge Middle School.
“Kids don’t care what I know until they know I care.”This tagline is included at the end of every e-mail John Condon sends out.
“I have always had a challenge for myself to build that trusting relationship with classroom kids on an individual basis,” said Condon, who teaches seventh-grade at Skyridge Middle School.
This approach is, in part, why Condon was named Teacher of the Year by the Camas-Washougal Chamber of Commerce. He is joined by Washougal High School physics teacher Jay Bennett, who one parent described as, “communicating in a style that draws his students in and makes them want to learn the material, even to the point of reteaching it to their families at home.”
The chamber will host a banquet for Condon and Bennett Tuesday, June 5, along with the Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year. Both educators were given the news by their superintendents, who walked into the classroom, unannounced.
