Herbert Ohta, a special education math teacher at Fairfax High School, was named one of Washington Magazine’s Teacher of the Year. Mr. Ohta was nominated by a parent of his students.

The magazine interviewed Mr. Ohta with questions about his experience teaching, advice for young teachers and three things in his classroom he could not live without:

“The three things I need in my classroom everyday are grace, patience and faith. Grace because no matter how much I think I know—I still make mistakes and need the forgiveness of my students. Patience because, at times, the students will test every fiber of my being. Finally, faith because I need to believe that what we are doing has a far greater impact than what we could ever imagine or hope for.”
