Susan Sponhauer, a second grade teacher at St. Maria Goretti School, is the Teacher of the Month for September. She was nominated by Adam McNeany, a current third grader who had Sponhauer as a teacher last year. Since Adam is no longer in Sponhauer’s class, they had a pizza party for just the two of them and Sponhauer won a $50 gift certificate from Market District, the Teacher of the Month sponsor. Here is Adam’s winning essay:
My favorite teacher is Mrs. Sponhauer at St. Maria Goretti School because she helps me when I am frustrated. She is very nice and explains what we are doing very clearly so we all understand. She is quiet when we are working. When we had a hard day of math, science and reading, she lets us have fun. I like her so much that I want to go back to school and learn all day. I guess this is the end. Well it was hard to write this, but it was fun.
