Congratulations to Milt Flow on being selected by his colleagues to be the 2014 Teacher of the Year for Piedmont High School. Flow is a PE teacher and baseball coach, who has worked at Piedmont for the past 22 years. According to Flow, “I am truly blessed to be honored as Teacher of the Year.”

Coach Flow is a Piedmont alumnus, who attended Montreat Jr. College where he majored in Business. He also attended Milligan College, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and Health & PE and a Masters of Education degree. He teaches Team Sports at Piedmont and is entering his 23rd year as baseball coach.

When asked about the positive impact he has on students in the classroom, Flow stated that “PE classes can teach students many lessons. Team sports teaches students discipline, respect, how to problem solve, how to work together as a team, and how to win and lose. All of these are life lessons that students need for the real world.” In the coaching arena, Flow led the 2013 baseball team to a 2A State Championship in May. According to Flow, “I enjoy watching my players develop over a 4-year period to become not only successful players, but also successful students.” Having attended Piedmont High as a student, Flow cited that “It is a good feeling to have gone here and then get to come back and teach for 23 years. Piedmont is a wonderful community school. Why would I want to leave when this is such a great place to teach?”

Milt Flow has made many positive contributions to both the PE classroom and the athletic program at Piedmont High School. Join the faculty, students, and staff in wishing him well at the district level of the Teacher of the Year competition for 2014!
