Lutheran South's Trey Fisk receives Exceptional Educator Award
The Affton Chamber of Commerce recognized Lutheran South teacher Trey Fisk as a recipient of one of its six exceptional educator awards. Additionally Lutheran South grad Lisa Rivers '83 was honored as an educator at Salem Lutheran.
Both Fisk and Rivers are instrumental to their schools. In his sixth year at Lutheran South, Fisk teaches physics, astronomy and math and is the faculty advisor for the National Honor Society.
His favorite part of the job is interacting with students. His colleagues say no one puts more effort into individual student attention than Fisk.
“He is always available to students and is willing to meet with them to go over homework, tutor, or reteach lessons,” said Lutheran South Principal Jonathan Butterfield. “It is evident that he really cares for his students and will do whatever it takes to help them be successful.”
Fisk is a graduate of Concordia University-Chicago with a BA in Physical Science and Mathematics. He holds a Master's in Educational Astronomy from the University of Illinois-Springfield. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, cheering on the Cardinals, running local trails and marathons.
Butterfield said Fisk is passionate, and that passion overflows into his classroom. In addition to his teaching, Fisk spends many hours serving his community.
Rivers has served 20 years at Salem Lutheran School in Affton. She is a mentor to several teachers, who look to her for guidance and her opinion. As an eighth grade teacher, Rivers has been instrumental in working with Lutheran South to help students better transition to high school.
