CRESTVIEW — The variety of new teachers at Crestview High School, and their enthusiasm, is exciting, Principal Bob Jones said.

“They’re quite a diverse group,” Jones said. “Some are fresh from college.”

Crestview High has increased its faculty with 21 new educators, replacing 10 who retired or transferred, and adding new teachers to comply with class-size laws.

Three of the new teachers are former Bulldogs. Computer technology teacher George Stakley III is following example of his grandfather, Sgt. George Stakley, who taught the school’s ROTC program. Sarah Glesenkamp has also returned to her alma mater to experience it from the other side of the teacher’s desk.

Geography teacher Matt Sanders is “part of the family now,” joining his parents, social studies teacher Stephanie Sanders and math teacher Jayson Sanders in the faculty ranks, Jones said.

“I just finished doing three observations, and these young teachers, gosh, they’re so enthusiastic,” he said.
