The Market District Teacher of the Month award winner for January is Erica Pedersen, a third grade teacher at Lantern Road Elementary nominated by Andrew Thomas. As a reward, Andrew won a pizza party for his class and Pedersen won a $50 gift card to Market District.
Here is Andrew’s winning essay:
My name is Andrew Thomas and I would like to nominate my teacher Mrs. Pedersen for Teacher of the Month! She teaches 3rd grade at Lantern Rd Elementary School.
I think she should be teacher of the month because she is good at making learning fun. She lets us play fun math games that I like. She also lets us earn electronics day, everyone really likes that reward and it makes us want work really hard, and sometimes she lets us watch movies. She never yells at us and is always nice to us and smiles as us. She gives us a lot of time to finish our work. She is my favorite teacher so far and I’m glad I’m in her class. I hope she gets chosen to win because she deserves it for being an awesome teacher.
