Friday the 25th of January, John Tyler Lions falls short to the Nacogdoches Dragons at Boulter Middle School. The Lions played a very hard, aggressive game. But they both played smart, and was determined. The boys were so upset at the end because someone from the other team made a buzzer beater, and ended the game with the score of 49-50.

John Tyler Band students go to the All-Region Clinic

On January, 27, 2019, 7 band students from John Tyler perform in the 2018-2019 Region 21 All-Region band at the Lindale High School auditorium. Two band members were in the Concert band, while the other five were in the Symphonic band.

Both bands spent 4 hours on Friday evening, and Saturday morning and noon to prepare the music. Then they performed the music on stage on Saturday evening. After the performance, they received their patches.


The John Tyler soccer boys fight till the finish against the host team in the Duncanville Classic

The Lions fought till the end during a game that could be easily described as a nail biter. In the dying minutes of the game, the varsity soccer team gains a point to tie up the game against the tournament host, Duncanville, who is one of the top teams in 6A.

Mrs. Caraway elaborates on the impact she has had as a coach and teacher at John Tyler

Mrs. Caraway has built the cheer program at John Tyler High School by recruiting middle school cheerleaders.  This gives them a much greater advantage than they have had in the past.

  If students are coming into this knowing how to cheer she spends less time teaching the basics and more time refining things.   Also, having greater numbers coming in from middle school allows her to have more experienced cheer leaders on Varsity Cheer  leading. 

Not all teachers feel that the impact they have in the classroom is equal  to that they have on court.  However, Mrs. Caraway stated teaching and coaching have an equal impact because when she is in her classroom she is both teaching and coaching her students to be better.  John Tyler is lucky to have a coach like her.
