The November Teacher of the Month winners are Muff Biber and Jen Skura, fourth grade teachers at Stonegate Elementary. Student Lily Lovell nominated them. As a reward, Lily won a pizza party for her class, and Biber and Skura received gift cards for Market District, Teacher of the Month sponsor.
Here is Lily’s winning essay:
I am certain that Mrs. Biber and Mrs. Skura are the best teachers in the world, for a fact!
Each week, each student gets 4 “Biber/Skura Bucks,” and if we misbehave, we owe a buck. But, if we’re good, we earn tickets, and at the end of every 9 weeks, my teachers go shopping at Target to buy everything from pencils to flip-flops and we get those items by using our tickets! Every Friday, we use our remaining “Bucks” and get entered in a raffle for special drinks or 5 tickets.
I love Mrs. Biber and Mrs. Skura!
