New Britton Elementary first-grade teacher Kasey Franklin was selected as the Edge Guys Heating and Cooling March Teacher of the Month. Franklin was nominated by student Julia Day. As a reward, Julia won a pizza party for her class, courtesy of Papa John’s, and Franklin received a $50 Visa gift card from the Edge Guys, Current’s Teacher of the Month sponsor.
Here is Julia’s winning essay:
Teacher of the Month:
The teacher I want to nominate is Mrs. Franklin. Mrs. Franklin makes good rules. Her rules are nice because when people are being bad she separates them, but not for the whole day. That is nice because some people don’t like to be away from their best friends. You know how some people feel embarrassed when they get called on and everyone knows they’ve been called on? Mrs. Franklin gives them a look, not just tells them out loud. The stuff that we read is not super hard books, but books that are our level that are “right” for us. If somebody in class is having trouble, Mrs. Franklin gives us an order of people she will talk to first. That makes me feel good because I think that is very nice because she lets everyone talk. That is good because everyone gets to share. When some people forget to get their books at the library, she sends a person down to help that person and to show them the way back to the classroom. I love Mrs. Franklin and these are the reasons she should be “Teacher of the Month.”
