Earl Fouch is a people person, which makes him well suited for his chosen career. He uses his people skills everyday as a teacher to get to know his students and their parents with the hope of getting the most out of them academically. 

“My favorite thing about being a teacher is the relationships with people,” Fouch said. “I get to spend a lot of time with people and use that time establishing relationships that last a lifetime.” 

It is that mentality that earned Fouch the title of Teacher of the Year at Hart County Middle School. He was voted to the position by his colleagues at the school. 

The relationships Fouch builds do indeed last a lifetime. He said he has often been approached by students after they graduate, go to college and enter the workforce who say they remember his class.
