The grade 8 students all got a certificate today, filled out with positive things their peers had said about them. I got one too... MrsC: - One of the most helpful teachers. - She's always willing to give up her own time to help students with their work. - Very funny and very nice. - Can she come to high school with us? - She gives the most awesome hugs. I actually look at her as more of a mom than a teacher. - Always helps me by going out of her way (and she gives us CANDY!) - Helpful, and a great teacher to have around. - Will always answer my questions, and if she can't, she tries her best. - Her laugh brings a smile to you. - A person who looks on the bright side of things. - Her care for us is amazing. We love her (teacher love, not literally). - She never leaves anyone behind! - She always gives me positive feedback. - A really fun teacher. - Always brings a great attitude to the classroom. - She helped make me the person I am today because she never gave up on me. - An amazing grade partner and a wonderful person to work with. - "MY MOTHER AWAY FROM HOME!" A copy is on my fridge, and the original is on the bulletin board above my desk. Although I didn't cry (then), this is the most precious gift I have ever received.
