Mr. Gaspar, Inspirational Educator

The Glendale Rotary Club recently honored educators and the contributions they make to the community.  Mark Gaspar, a Language Arts Teacher at Independence, was presented with the Matt O. Hanhila Inspirational Educator Award.  Mr. Gaspar teaches AP English and is the literacy coach at Independence.  GUHSD board members, administrators, and teachers joined in showing support for Mr. Gaspar.  Board member Patty Kennedy commented that whenever she visited Mr. Gaspar's classroom, it always inspired her.  The retired teachers that attended the presentation shared stories of having Mr. Gaspar as a student at Independence and then being proud to see him return as an outstanding teacher.  Thank you, Mr. Gaspar for making a difference as a dedicated educator.
