Elise Cramer, a 4th grader from Washington Woods Elementary, won the October Teacher of the Month contest with her essay for her teacher, Ann Joseph. Her class celebrated with a pizza party Oct. 27 and a $50 gift certificate for Joseph. Here is Elise’s essay:
Our teacher, Mrs. Joseph, makes science fun by calling up students to help illustrate the subject. Last time, she called up some kids to illustrate glaciers pushing and carrying sediment.
She also makes it rewarding to turn in homework on time. We may earn baskets by turning in all of our homework on time. By shooting baskets, we can earn prizes.
She makes even math fun! She teaches us tricks to help us learn and plays games with us that help us learn.
Mrs. Joseph loves us and shows it by helping us learn so that we will be successful.
