When asked Sgt. Homer how he felt about getting Teacher of The Year this is what he had to say.
“I thinks is unbelievable, awesome, insane, and it’s crazy. It’s an honor and privilege to hear all the other teachers of the year, you heard everything they did, so just to be nominated and associated is an honor”, said Homer. “To get the next nod is just fantastic, it really is.”
