About the Nominee: Anton Bucher was nominated by Kim Meeks. Mr. Bucher is a new teacher to Lone Star High School this year. Prior to his arrival, he served at Pioneer Heritage Middle School for a very long time.
Mr. Bucher is a "one-of-a-kind" stand-up guy! He has made an impact on so many students, including Ms. Meeks' oldest daughter. He has helped students with "disabilities" believe in themselves, giving them the love and attention they need to thrive and survive. Mr. Bucher has built confidence and self-esteem in thousands of students who may have never had any hope of a future.
He is also a coach for his adopted daughter's volleyball team. Mr. Bucher and his wife adopted her from China, and they also have a son whom they have adopted as well. They gave life to two children who may not otherwise have had a life.
Every year he invites colleagues, past students and their parents on a trip to New York.
