Mustang Middle School named Nick Hendricks, eighth grade history teacher, as the MMS 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year. It’s his third year with Mustang Public Schools.
Hendricks knew when he was in high school that he should be a teacher. He wanted to do something with his life that would leave a mark, something that would make his corner of the world a better place.
But after watching his parents work to pay the bills, Hendricks decided on a career in the medical field.
“Thats where the money was. As a high school kid, that seemed like the best plan going forward,” he said. “Yet, as I went to college and started that path, I didn’t like it. I went for a tour of some medical facilities and nothing excited me.”
