Roger Fink is a Health Teacher at Liberty High School and Hillsboro Online Academy. His nominator and student, Kat Pedersen, had this to say about Mr. Fink:
Mr. Fink is a teacher who’s not only very hilarious, but also generally caring and accepting. He's accepting of anyone and everyone, regardless of their background or personal self. He shows this in class, while also opening up the minds of his students. His way of teaching isn't to suppress the ideas of the students and tell them they're off limits, so that the student won't rebel and want it more. He will give alternatives and ways to go about things more responsibly, and encourages safety and good behavior. Many people have come to him for advice, and he's the one teacher that doesn't judge you and wants to help. He's a very talented teacher as well! Mr. Fink has done very kind things for people in the past. He even took on the care of one of his students after he had a bad home life, and took him in as a son. I think Mr. Fink deserves all the praise he gets.
Congratulations Roger Fink from all of us at K103!
