In a special weekly series, ACS will feature a faculty member. We asked questions about why they are passionate about the subjects they study and teach, and how they found their path to ACS.
Faculty Spotlight: Mr. Dwight Fage
What is your educational background?
I am from New Iberia, LA. I graduated from the University of Southwestern Louisiana (USL), now ULL, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. This is my 14th year teaching and my 30th year coaching.
What inspired you to teach?
I am inspired to teach because of great teachers that God placed in my life when I was a student.
What do you love about teaching at ACS?
I love the caring environment we have at ACS. It is truly a blessing and we are definitely a family. Each staff member goes out of their way to serve others.
What do you hope students gain from being in your class?
I hope that my students can see God through me. I strive to be a good representation of Christ.
Tell us a fun or interesting fact about yourself!
I love to listen to music. I enjoy watching and coaching sports.
If you could have dinner with three people, alive or not, who would they be and why?
- Moses, because he led God’s people out of Egypt where they were in slavery for many years.
- Vince Lombardi, because he is one of the best coaches ever.
- Derek Jeter, because he is my all time favorite baseball player.
