The March Teacher of the Month winner is Julie Parks, a third-grade teacher at Pleasant View Elementary. She was nominated by student Jack Schertzer. As a reward, Jack won a pizza party for his class and Parks won a $100 cash voucher from Teacher of the Month sponsor BMO Harris bank. Pizza was sponsored by Amore Pizzeria.
Here is Jack’s winning essay:
“I want to nominate my 3rd Grade teacher, Mrs. Parks. I think Mrs. Parks is a good teacher because she helps us with a lot of things. She helped me start my own Comic Club at school with my friend Joey and she is our adviser. She’s really fun because she makes up games to help us learn things. She says that our class is really good. She’s really funny and she really cares. She has a bright smile and makes class a happy place to be. This has been my favorite school year ever because of Mrs. Parks.”
