January’s Edge Guys Heating and Cooling Teacher of the Month was Maribeth Sellers, a third grade teacher at North Elementary. Her student, Izzy VonBlon, nominated her. As a reward, VonBlon won a pizza party for her classroom, courtesy of Papa John’s, and Sellers won a $50 Visa gift card from Edge Guys, Current’s Teacher of the Month sponsor.

Here is VonBlon’s winning essay:

My amazing teacher

I think Mrs. Sellers is the best teacher in the world because she always helps me when I’m anxious. She’s also the best because the day after we get back from a school break, she gives us snacks like Goldfish. She’s really nice because she never yells at students. She has awesome muscles. She’s a protector, and she gave me a 504 plan to help me with my ADHD and anxiety problems. She’s so nice, never rude and always humorous like telling us a gorilla was her twin sister. I love Mrs. Sellers. She’s my favorite person on Earth besides my Mama!

Students in grades K-12 are invited to enter Current’s February Teacher of the Month contest.
