Randall Briggs has been named Bixby High School’s Teacher of the Year.
Before becoming a teacher, Briggs served in the U.S. Army for 20 years. When asked what led him into teaching, he recalls walking toward a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter with a group of officers including the squadron commander and asking the group a trivia question, “Does anyone know why the UH-60’s tail rotor is tilted at an angle of 20 degrees off of vertical?” No one knew, so he explained. The squadron commander told him then that he ought to be a school teacher one day.Read More
