Mr. Kanoe Vierra (2002)
Kanoe Vierra knows the power that a teacher can hold. From a young age, he had a dream to become a teacher, but it was sidetracked by the discouragement of many of his high school teachers who claimed he was not smart enough. At the same time, his talent for teaching was recognized by three notable teachers who saw him tutoring struggling students in his English and Social Studies classes and encouraged him toward education. After high school, while attending Seattle Bible College, Kanoe again found himself tutoring struggling classmates. It was there that Kanoe recognize his gift for teaching. Several years later, Kanoe applied to Northwest University to earn a degree in secondary education. Since graduating in 2002, Kanoe has worked in the Edmonds School District as a high school English teacher, wrestling coach, and later Dean of Students at Scriber Lake High School. His skills in teaching and impact on students were recognized in 2020 when Kanoe was named the Washington State nominee for the NEA Foundation Award for Teaching Excellence.
