Mr. Doug Ivie
As a young adult, I had two goals in life - defend my country as a U.S. Army soldier and become a high school math teacher. I have accomplished both my goals and I am extremely proud of this fact. As I grow older, my goals have changed. Being a great father, grandfather, and husband keeps be busy, but is also very rewarding. One passion remains within me since my younger days - my desire to teach. Anyone can instruct students, pass out worksheets, and create exams, but teaching is more than that to me. Teaching is building a teacher-student trust that allows the student to feel comfortable in their learning environment and get the most out of their educational experience.
Being the youngest of nine children, I realize the importance of family. Here at TEC, we are a family. During my 14 years of teaching here, I've had the pleasure of developing a strong family bond with the staff and students. The bond that is shared here is like no other at any other school. We are TEC family!
