Mr. Bowthorpe Makes a Difference

Preston Bowthorpe

Preston Bowthorpe is a “Teacher Who Makes a Difference” at Sugar-Salem High School and Sugar-Salem Junior High. He has taught at both schools for 7 years. He is kind, creative, engaging, and hard-working. He helps students want to be better both academically and in everyday life. Preston works hard to help students understand that the only limits they have are the ones they put on themselves. When COVID first hit, he created a musical to allow the students to be able to enjoy putting on a show while still following guidelines. He makes a positive difference in the lives of his students and in the community.
