Belmont alumnus Graham Spencer has been named a Blue Ribbon Teacher for 2022 by Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS).

In addition to being named a Blue Ribbon Teacher, Spencer has also been recognized as the teacher of the year at his school and as a distinguished teacher by the Tennessee Education Association.

He is passionate about helping students discover their interests and potential and strives to create a classroom environment that is both challenging and supportive. “After graduating from [Belmont] and working for an awesome, socially minded company, I realized I wanted to have a bigger impact on my community. Teaching was the clear next step.”
