The November Market District Teacher of the Month winner is Kathryn Barker, a first grade teacher at West Clay Elementary. Student Owen Fluhler nominated her. As a reward, Owen won a pizza party for his class, and Barker received a $50 gift card for Market District, Teacher of the Month sponsor.
Here is Owen’s winning essay:
My first grade teacher, Mrs. Barker, is the best teacher ever because she is always positive. That is important because it puts us in a good mood and makes us believe in ourselves. If she is ever angry she never shows it, and she never takes her smile off her face. She is very understanding and always gives us hugs when we need them. She is ALWAYS there for us! Every day is awesome in our classroom because Mrs. Barker makes things go from boring to fun to even more fun!
