CHRISTOPHER COY

  • School: Hazen High School
  • Teaches: Band and Orchestra
  • Favorite Player: Russell Wilson

"Mr. Coy took over Hazen High School's band and orchestra program just a few short years ago when the longtime director retired, and what he has accomplished in such a short amount of time is simply amazing. While our orchestra program was pretty much established, the band program wasn't. From the very start, Mr. Coy dedicated himself to creating a successful marching band/pep band not only for Hazen High School, but also for our entire Renton School District," said Susan DeBartolo, a parent of a Hazen High School student. "Thanks to many personal hours of dedication, Mr. Coy has developed Hazen's band program - to the point where this year we officially have a marching band!" DeBartolo nominated Coy for the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom award.

  • School: Broadview Thomson PK-8
  • Teaches: Kindergarten - 5th Grade
  • Favorite Player: Russell Wilson

"Deena Docter always goes above and beyond in her role as a PE teacher, which is a means for her to reach the community. She sees and addresses the needs of each student (and their families), challenging them to engage with education while consistently demonstrating an intuitive ability to adapt her teaching so that students can succeed," said Jenny Chiang, a former teaching colleague at Broadview-Thomson. "Despite various challenges, Deena maintains a positive and enthusiastic attitude that is quite infectious to the students and staff!" Chiang nominated Docter for the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom award.
