Current in Noblesville’s September Teacher of the Month winner was McKenzie Leckrone, a third grade teacher at Noble Crossing Elementary. Her student, Emma Rashid, nominated her by writing a 100-word essay. Their reward? A classroom pizza party and $50 gift card from Market District, the Teacher of the Month sponsor.
Here is Emma’s winning essay:
Mrs. Leckrone is the best teacher ever! She is so, so funny. She told my class a story about when she was little, she once had a real funeral for her imaginary friend Bob, who she smashed behind a door when playing hide and seek with her friends. It was really funny. She is also a great teacher because she makes me post my goals on my locker to work towards, and every time I accomplish my goal, we get to bring it home, and she helps me set a new, harder one. She has made me be a better reader too because every week we write letters to her, and then she writes me back and suggests new books that are similar to the books I’m reading, and I have actually liked them more than what I picked. It’s so fun to be in her class also because she’s really loud and makes really funny faces and tells us funny stories about her funny kids. I hope my teacher wins!!!
