The teachers at Tifton County High School does their best when teaching the class. The overall quality of the teachers are very professional and well mannered. The teachers use different styles to engage the class in the lesson. Also, the teachers some times change their teaching style to fit the class. The teachers are very knowledgeable in what they are teaching. They use their knowledge to teach the students in a interesting way.The teachers effectively communicate with the students. Whether it is it by e-mail or face to face. The teachers try their best with grading. Although they can get tied up with teaching four classes the teachers still effectively put their grades in on time.

The teachers at my school care about there students. They form relationships with us and genuinely care. They can answer most of the questions that are asked and if they cant, they will find it out as soon as possible. Most teachers lecture and involve group work, that way class isn't boring. They incorporate technology into lessons on a regular basis to help students use technology and work with things that they enjoy. The teachers always grade the assignments in a reasonable amount of time. Most of the time they will get it graded during that class period, if not then by the end of the day.

Friday night lights have to be one of my favorite parts of high school ! I am a dancer in the Blue Devil Brigade and the feeling of halftime is electrifying. There are other things to enjoy about TCHS .The homecoming dance is very fun with cute decorations and an up to date DJ. The principal, Mrs. Seigler is always cordial and gives sports teams and club shout outs every morning. Dr. Holland, an administrator , is one of the coolest , most down to earth guys you'd ever meet. We also reign victorious in basketball so a packed out gym is the norm.
