Terri Slusser Named Teacher of the Year

She was hired at Boys Home in August of 2014 as a long-term substitute. Terri is currently teaching language arts, math, science, and social studies to grades 2-4. Her favorite thing about teaching at Boys Home are the small classes because she can build a relationship with the students.

Boys Home students and staff are very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Terri and appreciate her positive, caring, and upbeat nature!
