Music that Describes Tyrell

Tyrell Rhoades was nominated by his colleague, Aleisa Rhoades

Mr. Rhoades has been a special education teacher for 15 years in his district.  He began an Archery program 11 years ago to involve kids who are normally uninvolved in extracurricular activities. Then, he developed his afternoon elective class of outdoor skills through the Oklahoma Wildlife Division.  Today, he has more students in these programs than any other organization in his district. Mr. Rhoades handles a full caseload of confidential files, as well. Additionally, he has three world archery champions.

"Tyrell has made a huge difference in the lives of many kids for a long time," said Aleisa.
