Seth Warren means more to the Roanoke Rapids High School community than anyone will ever know. He comes in early, stays late, and his students know they can count on him to be there for them when they need him the most. Mr. Warren has shown his students that there is more to school than textbooks and PowerPoints and that he loves them. He helps other teachers when needed, and he coaches basketball. Mr. Warren helped with a men-to-men summit that his students attended at a local college, where they learned about what it means to be a man.
He is a great man and not an everyday teacher. He cares about his students and makes them all feel welcomed and safe. One student said that Mr. Warren helped them when they were about to drop out and made sure the student remained in school. Mr. Warren even stayed after school on a Friday to help the student.
Mr. Warren has changed many lives, and he tells his students that they are his kids. He is the best teacher his students could ever ask for. Many students at RRHS say their favorite teacher is Mr. Warren!
