Wayne Gorry named Arizona Rural Schools Association Teacher of the Year for Gila County

Wayne Gorry believes his diverse background is what led him to be chosen as the Arizona Rural Schools Association Teacher of the Year from Gila County for 2011. Gorry hasn’t always been a teacher. He arrived in Payson in 1982 after growing up in the Phoenix area and studying to teach debate and speech to high school students. He first taught in Chandler, but that only lasted two years. Realizing he preferred smalltown life to city life, Gorry decided to quit his job in Chandler and take a bike tour for a few months to contemplate his next move. Payson came to mind.
