Teacher Appreciation Week - CNN Student News
Mrs. Whitaker is the best type of teacher. She spends her time before, during and after school helping students with whatever classwork or problems that they bring to her. In addition she routinely puts her students work before her own, no matter how busy she is. The manner in which she passes on knowledge as well helps students to learn, and not feel talked down to. Being from India originally I also have felt singled out from time to time being in a rural district. When Mrs. Whitaker is in the room however she creates a safe and secure learning environment where all students are welcome, and you can grow personally. I feel that my personal success is due to her mentoring, and hope that future students will get to benefit from her exemplary instructional practices! She truly trusts and cares about her students which shows in all of her actions.she made that class really fun and most of the times I spent in there laughing so she called me Giggle Box.
