Mr. Till is a graduate of Indiana State University and Indiana Wesleyan University and has taught at Wabash Middle School since 2000. Mr. Till's outstanding teaching methods are entertaining, artistic, and imaginative, allowing students to express their ingenuity, imaginations and curiosity, creating a fun and stimulating learning environment. You never see him sitting behind a desk, rather, always standing and ready for the next classroom challenge. Mr. Till is an outstanding example of excellence in and out of the classroom.
In addition to teaching, he coaches girls' basketball, the academic team, shares guitar skills with staff and students and even meets with teachers during the summer to teach computer skills. Students enter his classroom hating math and leave in May saying it is their favorite class. In addition to his career, he and his wife Katey have three beautiful daughters, Aubrey, Sydney and Daisy.
