She stands out to her coworkers as an exceptional teacher who consistently goes above and beyond for her students. Her dedication, innovative teaching methods and genuine care for each student’s success make her an invaluable asset to Wiley Middle School.

Wiley’s Physical Education Teacher Christina Wayson said that Strauss stepped in to coach volleyball this season when she heard that the team was short-staffed.

“Tina’s willingness to step out of her comfort zone and learn something new, all for the sake of helping out others, is truly inspiring,” Wayson said.
