New Faces in Naples: Mr. Tyler Vest
Dear Naples School Community:
After extensively studying student performance, the researcher and policy expert Eric Hanushek found that “the difference between being taught by a highly capable and a less than capable teacher can translate into a full grade level of achievement in a single school year.” Fortunately for us, the Naples Central School District has always been home to an incredible group of educators.
As we prepare for the start of the 2019-2020 school year, I wanted to introduce many of the new faces you will see in our buildings by passing along information through our website and social media accounts. We are thrilled that Mr. Tyler Vest will be joining our school family, and I would invite you to help us welcome her to Naples this fall.
Hope to see you soon.
Matt Frahm, Superintendent
Name: Mr. Tyler Vest
Subject Area: RISE Program Coordinator
Why did you decide to apply/accept the job in the Naples Central School District?
I decided to accept the position because Naples is the district that I attended as a student and an organization that I admire greatly. I have strong ties to many of the teachers and staff, and the opportunity to become coworkers with them and contribute to the district was an opportunity that I had been hoping for.
What do you like the most about your job?
The thing I enjoy most about my job is the opportunity to truly get to know the students I am working with. The one-on-one setting allows me to work directly with students and create relationships centered on their abilities and needs. Each student is different with unique interests, and my job allows me create experiences that allow them to be as productive as possible.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I enjoy coaching, watching, or playing (when my arm lets me!) baseball. I also enjoy golfing, playing soccer, and doing anything active and competitive. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends and traveling to new places.
What types of books/magazines would we see on your bookshelf?
I read coaching books from some of the great coaches of the past and present as well as other sports-based content. I also enjoy reading books that dive into historical events and modern-day issues.
What is your favorite quote?
“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.”– Winston Churchill
What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is authentic Mexican food.
Tell us a little about your family.
My family has been a huge part of my determination and work ethic. Both of my parents are successful, self-employed professionals who have had to work hard for everything they have. The lessons I have learned and the hard work I have been able to observe taught me to work hard for and appreciate everything. My grandparents also played a big role in my life by teaching and reinforcing lessons of hard work and good character.
If you were to leave a legacy here in Naples-what would it be?
The legacy I would like to leave would be being remembered as a person all students could come to for help and advice. I would like to play a part in students becoming successful and making positive changes in their lives. If the opportunity ever arises, I would like to make a strong impact on the athletic programs as well, especially the baseball program. I would like to be remembered in a similar way to how a role model of mine, Coach Gary Schenk, is remembered.
