Brian Bay approaches teaching with laughter, joy and grace.
These are the principles he uses as a foundation to build relationships with students at the H.E. Vocational Agricultural Center in Kalispell Public Schools, where he’s taught for the past 15 years.
“Those three things, I think people don’t have enough of in the world,” Bay said.
When laughter, joy and grace are present in learning, Bay said that students — whether they are at the top of the class or at risk academically — are able to see that “we’re in this together and we’re all learning something new.”
