Current in Noblesville’s December Teacher of the Month was Melinda Langworthy, a first-grade teacher at Stony Creek Elementary. Her student, Breleigh Tanton, nominated her by writing a 100-word essay. As a reward, Breleigh won a pizza party for herself and her classroom, and Ms. Langworthy received a $50 gift card to Market District grocery store, the Teacher of the Month sponsor.
Here is Emily’s winning essay:
Miss Langworthy is the best. She is very, very nice. She does lots of fun things. Indoor recess is always very fun because she lets us do almost whatever we want. My favorite thing to do is play an elephant game. She has a love for giraffes and so do I. She once told us a story about how a giraffe licked her hand. She has really cool ringtone on her phone. Sometimes it rings and if it does she lets us dance until it stops. She uses positive words like, ‘good job’. One thing I really like is when she reads she stops and explains what she is reading about.
