Cumberland Road Elementary School fourth grade teacher John Murch was the Market District Teacher of the Month for February. Murch was nominated by Brennan Harvey and Casey Alexander, who won a pizza party for their class from Teacher of the Month sponsor, Market District. Murch also received a $50 gift card to Market District.
Here is Brennan and Casey’s essay:
Dear teacher of the month award,
Thank you for taking the time to read our email. We just wanted to say we think our teacher (Mr. Murch) is worthy to get the award this month.
First of all, just a couple days ago (January 26) he spent so much of his time to organize a project called Stratosphere. We sent up a weather balloon into space and conducted experiments with the launch and then analyzed the data.
We just started learning about volume. He brought in his bike so we could calculate the volume of parts of the bike like the tire, rim, etc.
Plus Mr. Murch is a super hands on teacher. He let us do an experiment where we shook a sugar cube in a jar to demonstrate what happens to a rock when it rolls down a mountain.
We thank you for taking the time to read our essay and we urge you to nominate our teacher (Mr.Murch) for teacher of the month.
