The April Teacher of the Month winner is Sandi Johnson, a third-grade teacher at Prairie Trace Elementary. She was nominated by student Emma Graves. As a reward, Emma won a pizza party for her class and Johson won a $50 Visa gift card from Teacher of the Month sponsor Edge Guys Heating & Cooling.
Here is Emma’s winning essay:
The best teacher I’ve ever had is Mrs. Johnson, 3rd grade challenge teacher at Prairie Trace Elementary. She is the best because when I feel like giving up she reminds me to try, try, try again. When I don’t understand a problem, she will help me through it. When I need advice, she gives it. She makes sure that I am on task. Mrs. Johnson reads books to the class while we visualize. She is very kind to me and puts encouraging posters up on the wall. Mrs. Johnson deserves teacher of the month because she is wonderful!
