For 23 years, Troy Edie has been an educator in the Finneytown Local School District. This summer, he was promoted into the position of Teaching and Learning Coordinator for the district, a role he’s been preparing for his whole career.
As a graduate of The Ohio State University with both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Elementary Education, Edie has been teaching in Finneytown his entire career since being hired to teach 2nd grade in 1996. Since then he has taught second, sixth, and first grades. “During my years at Finneytown, I have been blessed to work with many amazing colleagues,” he says. “I view myself as a teacher helping teachers, and I hope to work with staff to make this district the best that it can be.”
When the new year begins, it will look quite different for Edie, but he says, “Having spent nearly half of my life working for FLSD, it defines me as a person. The students inspire me, and I am excited every August to begin a new year. I am thrilled and thankful for the opportunity to serve in my new role!”
Mrs. Noe, superintendent, stated that she is very excited to watch Mr. Edie continue to grow in his new role. She explained, “Troy is such a great 1st grade teacher that I hate to take him out of the classroom, but he has so much to share with other staff.” She continued, “I am inspired by his energy and dedication to the students and staff of Finneytown. He is exactly what we need to help us get to the next level!”
