In sixteen years, Keith Enyart has taught Math Skills, Pre-Calculus Honors, and Geometry in four different states and seven different schools. Now, he has come to City High and added another school to his list.
“We live really close to City High and our son [is] in kindergarten. For me, it’s really important for us to be able to ride our bikes to his elementary school.”
Enyart has a viewpoint like no other because just last year he taught at a school in the very same district: Liberty High.
“I feel more a part [of] this community than I did in North Liberty,” Enyart said. “I would commute, I would do my thing, and then just come home, and almost live two separate lives.”
Even though the school year just started, he has already begun to impact students.
“He’s patient and he doesn’t teach too fast,” said Dylan Chard-Cuda ‘22.
She added, “He makes sure we know that it is okay if we don’t know what we’re doing and he doesn’t expect us to know what we haven’t been taught.”
Students at City High have already made their impression, Enyart said.
“I always really appreciate just getting to know different students and their personalities. You guys are hilarious, you have a great sense of humor, so I always look forward to that,” Enyart said. “Frankly, just working with young people, it just provides me with a lot of energy because you’re really engaged in your academics. It’s really inspiring to see that.”
He now teaches geometry and algebra and offered the following advice: “Drink a lot of coffee. Be patient and don’t be afraid to reach out.”
