Congratulations to FPD’s 2021 Teacher of the Year, Mr. Matthew Hopper. Mr. Hopper teaches Latin in FPD’s middle and high school. He is well-known for his enthusiasm for Latin, Roman culture, and Greek mythology. He inspires his students to not only study the ancient language but also connect it with stories in the Bible, bringing together his faith with his academic studies.

The William H. Bragg Teacher of the Year Award is given in memory of Mr. William Harris Bragg. Steve and Ginger Bragg wanted to remember their dad in a way that encourages FPD’s teachers in their commitment to strive to honor Christ in their profession and their investment in making a difference in students’ lives. Congratulations, Mr. Hopper.
