|Pass Christian Middle School eighth grade social studies teacher, Tyler Gaylord, may have taught classes on Friday dressed in a hilarious turkey ensemble; however, he was not the only character in the classroom. Eighth grade language arts students dressed up as the characters from the play, Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller. Despite the multitude of characters in the classroom, Mr. Gaylord still managed to treat his students to a test!

It may be a little uncomfortable to teach all day with a stuffed turkey on your head, but it was a great honor for eighth grade social studies teacher and current Pass Christian Middle School (PCMS) Teacher of the Year, Tyler Gaylord. Although the students elected Mr. Gaylord to wear a turkey headdress and outfit, it was all in good fun and for a wonderful cause. The Turkey Teacher Contest raised $277.51 to buy perishable items for the Pass Christian Food Bank to give to families in need this holiday season. When asked how he handled wearing the turkey costume all day, Mr. Gaylord jokingly responded, “I made it look good!” Eighth grader Marly Crawford quickly added, “He enjoyed it a little too much!”
The annual Turkey Teacher Contest was sponsored by the PCMS Student Council, who also sponsored a nonperishable food drive for the Pass Christian Food Bank. Student Council sponsors are PCMS teachers Lynette Cooper, Tyler Gaylord, Savannah Rishel, and Charlene Stephens.
