Bo Graham, 36, is the new Fort Scott High School Student Success Center Teacher.
“I became an educator because I had coaches and teachers that made a huge impact on my life,” he said. “I hope to do the same for the students and athletes I come in contact with! Bob Campbell was the main person who inspired me to teach. But I also had many others who played a role in that.”
Graham has been in education for 15 years, having graduated from Pittsburg State University with a masters of arts degree in education.
“The best part of teaching for me has been having students or athletes come back seven, eight or nine years later letting me know the impact I had on them. It makes every second worth it,” he said.
For Graham one of the challenges in education is technology.
“The greatest challenge I see in education is probably technology, and that being good and bad,” he said. “The technology you use to run school changes yearly. And with the use of computers, tablets, and cell phones good and not-so-good things can happen.”
Fort Scott is Graham’s hometown.
He has been married to Jamie for six years and has a 3-year-old daughter named Blakely.
In his spare time, Graham likes spending time with family, golfing, and watching Duke basketball.
