SCSD Teacher Proud February Highlight: Tucker Greer

Tucker GreerThe City of St. Charles School District is excited to take part in the “STL Teacher Proud” campaign, an effort to highlight the amazing teachers who choose to serve the St. Louis community and inspire others to join the noble profession of teaching. On the second Tuesday of each month, we’ll highlight an SCSD teacher who chooses to make a difference every day.

Tucker Greer is a drama teacher at Hardin Middle School. While the 2022-23 school year is his first year as a teacher, he’s no stranger to the education profession. Greer comes from a family of educators. His mother is a high school theatre teacher and he has two sisters who work in education; one is a college professor and the other is a behavioral specialist at an elementary school.

“I have always been surrounded by (my family's) passion for education,” Greer said. “I guess it just rubbed off on me!“

While Greer’s passion for teaching is obvious to anyone who watches him work in the classroom, it’s his desire to be more than just a teacher that he finds most rewarding.

“The most satisfying thing about being a teacher is getting to be a role model to students who don't necessarily have one,” Greer said. “I enjoy being there for the students-- going to their games, being someone who can just listen to them, and just letting them know that I am in their corner and ready to help them in any way that I can.”

His advice to anyone considering taking up the noble profession?

“Just go for it!” Greer said. “It is the most rewarding profession out there. Invest your energy into the students and they will give trust and respect in return.

Thank you to Tucker Greer and all of our SCSD teachers for making a difference in our community.
