This is the image for the news article titled Liberty High Teacher and Author Inspires OthersAs a former student and now young adult, I continue to be inspired by Ms. Darrian Tanner. Since I was a student at Liberty high school, Ms. Tanner has always been that teacher to stand out from the rest. As a mentor to other teachers, she recently wrote a book for educators and it has been the talk of the town! Teachers are posting all over social media calling this book a must read. Here's a little more about Ms. Tanner:

Ms. Darrian Tanner is currently in her eleventh year as a high school English teacher and in her second year as an instructional mentor. She was born and raised in East St. Louis, IL, and this is where her love for education truly began as she was inspired by both her teachers and aunts who were educators and administrators in the school district.

Ms. Tanner graduated from the College of Education at Michigan State University with a B.A. in English Ed and completed the teacher certification program with a yearlong internship at a local high school. Throughout her years of teaching, she came across great success on the school campus whether it was through her student mentorship programs or the classroom experience. Ms. Tanner was presented with the Florida High Impact Teacher Award two years in a row because of the significant growth in her students’ reading and writing state test scores. She has a philosophy behind these results that’s much bigger than a lesson plan or special classroom assignments, and she developed a passion to share these principles with other educators.

In 2016, she wrote her first ebook entitled, Finally Some Answers: 50 Classroom Solutions for the Secondary Ed Teacher. Her newest book, Teacher Authority in the Classroom: It’s Not a Battle-It’s a Bargain, was released in August of this year. In this book she talks about the perspective of both the educators and students when it comes to understanding teacher authority in the classroom.

Three years ago, she developed a strong heart to help other educators in the areas of student behavior and engagement. As a former ambassador for Teach.org and workshop presenter, Ms. Tanner makes great effort to reach educators and students across the world in hopes of impacting the world in an unforgettable way.
