The Poth High School journalism class sponsored a teacher Web page contest in April. This contest was a way to see who had the most school spirit and who was creative enough to make it happen. The contestants were teachers Oscar Hernandez, Margaret Hoover, Lynette Melton, and Stacey Cooke.

The competition was based on the following criteria: easy-to-use, up-to-date lesson plans, working links, school spirit, and attractiveness.

This year’s winner was Mr. Hernandez. With a display of Pirate pride, Hernandez was able to conform all the criteria into an awesome Web page.

Hernandez is the new Spanish teacher this year, and this is his first year teaching, coming to Poth after retiring from the U.S. Army.

“Making a Web page is not easy. It’s definitely a learning experience, especially for those who do it for the first time,” Hernandez said.

Hernandez said that it feels really good to win, even if it’s for a friendly competition between teachers. He feels it is important for all teachers to have a Web page because it’s convenient for everyone, and allows students to find out about upcoming assignments.

Featured in the April issue of The Spyglass, the Poth High School newspaper, Hernandez will also be given a trophy to display in his classroom. All participants will receive goodie bags.

The journalism students would like to recognize Mrs. Melton for her excellent Web page. Mrs. Cooke’s Web page was in the Easter holiday spirit and mixed professional with adorable. Mrs. Hoover created a Web page that allowed easy access to all lesson plans and kept students involved in extracurricular activities in the know of what was going on.

Melanie Votion, a Poth High School junior, is a Wilson County News junior journalist and is a member of the FCCLA and Science Club. Her plans after high school include two years of junior college before pursuing medical studies to become a registered nurse. Melanie is the daughter of Jeffrey and Sandie Votion; she has one brother and a sister.
