Ms. Noel has gone above and beyond to make virtual learning a success for all of her students. She has researched and experimented with many different platforms and formatting to encourage student learning and participation. She uses a name wheel to randomly call on students which helps them all have an opportunity to share and promotes equal opportunity. She uses a book application for storytime, Youtube for songs that make learning letters fun. I've been most impressed when she pulled out hellosmart.com, which allows the children to write or do math activities, and then she can view the children's responses. She takes the time to write comments on each child's worksheet, and my son delights in seeing his name and "awesome job!" or similar comment appear on the worksheet on his screen. A recent example of when Ms. Noel particularly showed her exceptional commitment to each student was when my son logged in to math class when it had just ended. Ms. Noel pulled up a math activity for him to do none-the-less even though she surely could have used the time to eat lunch or do lesson planning. We could not be more grateful for all that Ms. Noel has done and continues to do for our child! Virtual Prek-4 has far exceeded our expectations, and it is because of Ms. Noel and her commitment to her students and to continually learning new ways to engage them virtually.

Ms. Henry was the most helpful teacher i’ve had and I think she has helped improve not just my writing but who I am today. She has taught me how to articulate words well, and has helped me see things differently. One thing I like about Ms. Henry is that no matter who you are, if you did something wrong she would hold you accountable for it. I’m glad that she has done that because it has taught me to be responsible for my actions.

Ms. Toor has been such a wonderful, patient teacher for Paige.

Paige has improved so much with her reading and I know it is from Ms. Toor because I observed how wonderful Ms. Toor was last year with Allison and in helping her read! Allison is now one of the most advanced readers and I know it is because of both Ms. Toor and Ms. Pillette's assistance last year. Ms. Toor also gives productive feedback or follow on questions to both the students which helps them think more about their assignments and also helps me as a parent further instruct my child. Ms. Toor is very patient, but can also be firm when it is needed, which is much appreciated and important to teach the kids a disciplined, but patient way of learning. Ms. Toor also has a unique approach to teaching that Paige told me about which incorporates the remote learning. When Paige is in a small group, one child needs to unmute their computer so she can hear them read, but the other kids in the group still have to read but with their computers on mute. That way Ms. Toor can see all the kids lips moving and knows they are reading, but can focus on one kid at a time. Brilliant! Thank you Ms. Toor for teaching my kids how to read! We are forever grateful!

First and for most, i never thought i would make this about my wonderful math teacher but after some thinking, i’ve realized that he has benefited my whole online school experience. Back in sixth grade, i struggled with math. I didn’t care for learning much either and my grades reflected that. Math has always been my worst subject and unfortunately still is. Back then, i thought Mr. Blackett was too hard on me and my peers. I thought he was picking us apart because we didn’t understand what we were learning. This notion went on for two years. Now, fast forward to eighth grade and my math skills have improved. Sure sometimes I respond to questions vaguely, but i’ve almost fully comprehended the eighth grade math skills. Though what i’m being taught is surely irrelevant, in my opinion, I’ve improved in a subject that i had given up on. My mindset had changed drastically due to my teachers hard work. I’ve learned that he’s only hard on us because he WANTS us to improve. He WANTS us to succeed. It’s not that he thinks we’re unintelligent or simple minded. He wants to challenge our thinking so that, in the end, our intelligence is more advanced. I am truly grateful for my math teacher. I am now motivated to challenge myself on arduous tasks and assignments, thanks to Mr. Blackett.

In my English classes, I always knew I needed to improve, but I never knew how until I met Ms. Henry. Ms. Henry might come off as a tough teacher, yes she is tough, but in a good way, she pushes me to my full potential. I remember days where I would submit my writings in her class, and I wouldn't get the score I wanted. That made me want to improve and work harder. I am grateful to ms. Henry, because she taught me that you can not settle for less, you have to go above and beyond, and that is what I learned to do in my writings. Even though I still have a long way to go and still have more to learn. Now with some of my writings, I am proud to say I wrote them thanks to her. Often we want everything the easy way, but I like the fact that when I submitted my writings she just didn't give me a good grade she gave me an honest grade. Encouraging

Ms. West is a teacher that I feel like I can talk to about school things and what going on in my other classes; and she would still understand.

Dear Honored Schools, Our family would like to nominate and recognize Ms. Cruz. Ms. Cruz is our son Ezra's homeroom and math teacher. She has been a consistent force in our son's learning over the past year and a half and she's incredible. Our son did not attend a dual language school before Powell and the transition was initially challenging for him. Ms. Cruz supported him with love and kindness even as he felt like it was too hard. I have seen Ezra become so much more confident in using Spanish and can't wait to see him grow further. The way she balances challenging students and at the same time providing them support is powerful to watch. Ms. Cruz also moved up a grade so she could stay with her students admist the pandemic and moving to virtual school. That is not easy for a teacher because it means a lot of new material and planning. She did it anyway because she wanted students to feel supported. We are so grateful to her and feel so lucky that Ezra has had Ms. Cruz for these formative years. Gracias Ms. Cruz! Go Panthers!

Mrs. Smith was the preschool teacher for my oldest and she is currently the preschool teacher to my 3 year old. Mrs. Smith has always gone above and beyond for her students and their families. If I ever have a question about anything going on at school, I call her. If she doesn't know the answer, she will find out and get back to me. She buys supplies and goody bags using your own money all of the time. Even with virtual learning, she has given out goody bags to all of her students. She even delivered supplies to our house because I was not able to go to the school to pick it up. Even more amazing than all of this is what she has managed to accomplish with my very young 3 year old through a virtual environment. My daughter has never been in school and does not yet have the attention span to sit through a class, let alone a virtual class. I can barely get her to follow directions when I am with her. I thought that virtual learning would be a complete disaster for her. It wasn't. Not only will my child now sit for Mrs. Smith's class, she will participate. She went from not knowing her numbers to counting to 10. This week Mrs. Smith got my child to draw a letter for the very first time. I am absolutely amazed by the progress I have seen in my child. She now asks for Mrs. Smith and gets upset if Mrs. Smith is not there on the screen. When my daughter sees Mrs. Smith on the screen now she says, "That's my friend!" I knew Mrs. Smith was special back when she taught my first child, but this experience of watching Mrs. Smith connect with my youngest through a virtual platform has been amazing. As a teacher, I am truly in awe of Mrs. Smith's talent and ability to connect with her students and families. We love Mrs. Smith.

The teacher that I want to send this blessing to is Ms.West, a gentle, warm teacher that I have never received from all the teachers I have studied in Vietnam. She helped me a lot in the first days of school. She also gave me glasses because she knew I was short-sighted, she was like an aunt to me. She cares about her students little by little, everyone who has a hard time learning just tells her, she will help her best. She is always the one my mom, my sister always mentioned when she got into my school she loves kids, she always keeps a big box of candies and snacks whenever a kid walks past class, she'll call in and give them one. So the students of my school really like to visit her class, she is always welcoming to everyone. This also makes a lot of students love her. Thank you for every single thing you do for me, Ms.West.

She has been so patient and worked so hard to convey enthusiasm and excitement through the computer at seeing Max every day and at the work he has been doing. Max now looks forward to her class, in particular writing Spanish consonant and vowel combinations, because he sees how happy she is at his hard work. Thank you so much Ms. Patty for being the bright spot in the virtual learning day!

My name is Imani Nesbeth and Ms. Henry was my 6th and 7th grade English teacher. Although she is not my English teacher this year, she still helps me with my work. Before I met Ms. Henry my biggest challenges were improving on my writing. Although I'm a good writer, Ms. Henry was always able to give me some advice on how I can change up my tone or how I can make my story more interesting to the reader. My teacher is so special because she teaches like no other. She comes up with creative ways to teach us. For example, in class when we read a book we would sometimes start our warm up by tossing around a cube that had questions on it that we would respond to about the book we were reading. Or another example is that after we read a few chapters, we would get in a circle, the whole class, and she or another classmate would start off by saying one sentence on the chapter we read and we would go around as a class saying one sentence at a time until we came up with a summary of the chapter(s). But my favorite thing we did in class were the debates. I love to debate on certain topics and what Ms. Henry would do is set up the classroom where there is a group in the middle of the room who would be debating on a topic she gave. Then there would be other classmates on the outside of the circle in the middle that would take notes and decide if they agree or disagree with other students. I loved that because we all got a turn to argue our point and try to persuade others. Also, Ms. Henry wouldn't budge in the debate and just let us try to convince others on our own, which really does help because it gives us an opportunity to try and work things out on our own. One thing Ms. Henry has taught me that I will always remember is that when you are writing about informational stories you cannot talk about your opinion because that is not what matters. Instead always write about the facts especially when writing an objective summary. Another thing about Ms. Henry is that she didn't tolerate disrespect from anyone or towards any students. She didn't stand for letting any student get bullied and she was always so encouraging and uplifting students. I am grateful for Ms. Henry being a teacher in my life and I'm glad I got to experience her teachings because they have really helped me improve on my reading and writing skills. I definitely believe she deserves this prize.

Mrs. West is by far the most influential teacher I’ve had throughout my educational experience. She is kind, nurturing, smart and engaging but most of all she is an outstanding teacher! Mrs. West made learning fun and relevant. It is because of Mrs. West that I am a true lover American history today. There was never a dull moment in Mrs. West’s class. She came to work everyday excited to teach which inspired us to learn! I have never in my entire experience as a student experienced a teacher who exuded the level of enthusiasm she brought to her classroom everyday! Mrs. West made every student feel special. She not only knew the names of her students but she also knew the names of their siblings and parents. Mrs. West was not just my teacher, she was my mentor and my shero! Mrs. West has had a lasting impact on my life. I don’t think there is a person who has ever experienced her as a teacher that would disagree.

My mom is an artist and she even LOVED Ms. Thrasher. She really helped me this year and I feel like I enjoy art way more now. I remember loving coming to art because I was excited about all the kahoots and games. I now realize that the kahoots actually thought me so much about the history of art and many different artists. In addition, I learned many different photography techniques and even got to learn the history of memes and selfies. I am sad that art is for only one term but I truly wish it was for more. Ms. Thrasher especially made art much more fun and something I always look forward to during my day. Ms. Thrasher is an amazing teacher and really hope she will get to teach again sometime.

I am so happy that she is my teacher because my first year in middle school would have been even more stressful. I can tell she cares about each student including me.

I love how encouraging she is, and even when I feel like I don't know the answer to a question, she makes me feel like whatever I say is beneficial to the conversation, and the lesson. She does this by saying short encouraging lines like "remember, there is no wrong answer!" and after you respond she will show you she appreciates what you said by saying "snaps for that!" or "I uplift that!". In general, Mrs. Pitney makes her "classroom" feel like a safe space. Also, if I forget something crucial, she never looks down on the fact that you forgot something. Instead, she smiles, assures you that it is quite alright, and tells you what you need to know. She likes to hear other people's stories, and I like when she shares some of her own.

Mr. Singleton has really helped me on my short middle school journey. He is a reliable teacher and a kind person. I can go to him with problems about other teachers or students and he can always help me out. I like how he is kind to every student and gets every kid engaged. I am not a kid who needs help talking in class because I do it a lot but I know a lot of kids that don't talk as much. It seems like I here their voices more in Mr. Singleton's class. I have gone to him with questions about how to address another teacher. He helped me figure out how to talk to them without being rude but also getting my point across. I know that he is also not only an amazing teacher to me, a lot of my friends really enjoy his class also. I am lucky to have him for math class, advisory, and fun Friday. I really like all of my other teachers a lot, they are all great but because I spend so much time in his class he is one of the only people that I feel like I have bean able to connect with in a way that I did in person. I think that things like forming relationships with teachers or friends are both really hard and the fact that I think I have gotten to know him is a really good felling. If he is reading this thank you so much.

Every teacher is special not because of their title but inside, it's not their facial indifferences but what they see, and say. And I truly believe that this teacher Ms. Nill is special a woman in pursuit of a future who now teaches Spanish at a Middle School. And that is hardest because one's desire to spread and expand their knowledge to another is a true passion, it is not forced or pushed. Especially Spanish is very much different to many, though I'm not saying English, Science, Math, Music, Art, and PE aren't different it depends on us, and how we think. To have started as a kid, and pursue their future, Ms. Nill took that as teaching kids to be accomplished. I've learned that many teachers are not only someone who has to teach us academic topics, they are mentors. There might not be a conversation or moment in which Ms. Nill and I have had much of a "talk." But I can understand deep down that she is a great teacher. It's one's background that makes something come possible in imagination or reality. Ms. Nill has a passion that shines greater than a star.

It is so early in the year, and I'm so new to distance learning, that this is all so daunting. I have only known Mrs. Wickersham for a few months and she has already made this online environment so much more personal. I remember on the first day of school I set my alarm and was prepared for the day to go just according to my plan, it didn't. By the end of the first day, I was so discouraged, I thought for sure that online learning was going to change me for the worse. Mrs. Wickersham was/is my "huddle" teacher, which means she not only teaches my history teacher, but every morning at 9:00 am she is the first teacher I have. On the first day of school, she said that "huddle" was going to be a time when we all got to know the small group of people in that 9:00 am class a little better. She said that this was going to be a place where we would all feel safe and supported because its easy to feel small and neglected in middle school, even more so in an online environment. I was absolutely positive that it would never work at first, sure that online learning was awful and nothing could change that, Mrs. Wickersham changed my mind. After about two weeks of trust exercises and inside jokes, my negativity faded to skepticism, and after another week I found myself actually having fun. One time our huddle class decided we were going to play Kahoot, Mrs. Wickersham claimed she was undefeated and that we would never be able to beat her in any game of Kahoot. However, she did say that she at least want ed to give us a chance so she said that we could pick the genre of game. Up for the challenge, my huddle group unmuted themselves and started calling out suggestions. When I suggested the subject Harry Potter (which I am a huge fan of and know practically everything about), Mrs. Wickersham excepted. We all logged into the online game and began to take it. By the end of the game, I was first with two students in second and third, We were all so proud of beating Mrs. Wickersham that I didn't even realize that the students in my huddle had banned together to take her down. For the first time, I felt like part of a team, and I think that was Mrs. Wickersham's goal the whole time. She is continuing to make me feel happy about school in this troubled time, and I would like to go back to in-person school sometime this year, but even if we don't, I look forward to going through seventh grade with Mrs. Wickersham to help me.

My french teacher is extremely kind and very funny! I always look forward to French Class. Any time he introduced something new, and we are able to discover what it is, he calls us "amazing children" and "very, very smart". There was one specific time when he tested our listening skills; he performed as a salesman on the street and tried to sell us detergent! At first, we weren't completely sure what he was saying because he spoke so fast! One other student suggested that he was talking about detergent, and another suggested he was talking about produce. I said possibly he was talking about a new store that had both! Although we were not spot on, he complimented everyone who inputted ideas and said we were "intelligent children. Eventually, with a lot of input from the class, we discovered he was a salesman, and he was talking so fast because he was trying to sell us detergent from the street! He even asked us how much we would want; he was so confident he'd already sold us the detergent! Once we figured out all the details, he said, "you guys are my favorite class, so many intelligent people, wonderful people." Any time we do something difficult, he congratulates us, and it feels sincere. That's why every day, I look forward to French class."

During the pandemic which has been mentally difficult for me and many people, Ms. Parish has taken time to acknowledge that working our live class time into our independent time to work wasn't helpful to us and that work then piled up, so I would like to thank her and appreciate her for acknowledging our situation. This also removes stress from me and helps both mentally and physically. This has been really helpful through virtual learning, so props to her.

I think it's hard for everyone because of the ongoing pandemic, and the fact that we can't interact with our classmates and teachers in person at school. Although, my French teacher, Ms. Bullock, has made learning completely amazing, considering the time that we are in. I have to admit, I was a little nervous at the beginning of the year, going into a completely new school, not knowing what was going to happen. I remember the first time I joined Ms. Bullock's class, she greeted us in a way that made me feel welcomed and enthusiastic about the rest of the year with her. I was completely new to the French language, but after a few classes, I had learned many new words, thanks to her. Ms. Bullock had not only taught us, but made learning fun. We would play a variety of games, such as Quizlets, Kahoots, and many more. Overall, I have really enjoyed having Ms. Bullock as my French teacher so far. Thank you Ms. Bullock for taking the time to teach us and make sure that we have fun!! (Or should I say "Merci Madame")

She does not show frustration when technology is not on her side. She was always very engaged with the students in her class but I am very impressed that she has been able to keep the kids attention with virtual learning. She has adjusted and adapted to new teaching lessons in unprecedented times. She speaks to her students in Spanish to ensure that they all understand the task at hand. She sent personal letters in the mail to all of her kids, my son absolutely loved his.. She is greatly appreciated in this family and I hope she has many successful years as a teacher.

Mr. Omar Lopez has changed my life by making me believe in myself, making me feel that I am capable of doing many things that I thought I was vulnerable to facing. When I took his class I didn't know anything, adding that it was an advanced class I was in 9th and he was teaching 10th grade. When I entered the class I did not see anyone from my grade I felt very afraid because they knew more than me, I was afraid of not passing his class. From my first day in chemistry class, Mr. Lopez was always direct and always says things as they are. I was afraid of his attitude, but over time I saw that he was not as serious as he sees, he is very comprehensive. My worst fears were when he called my name, I was afraid of not answering well, but when he already spoke and said no, that is not the answer, I felt relief because he never made me feel less for not knowing the answer. I always thought that I knew how to write my Spanish well, but what a great surprise my grammar was not good. He taught me to improve my grammar in Spanish, also taught me not to be afraid.

She helped me build healthy self-esteem in my daughter because she was giving her support to believe in herself beyond her disabilities and insecurities. As a consequence, my daughter opened her mind to develop a plan to be prepared for a productive professional life; something that my daughter did not believe before because she felt unable to do something like that. Because of that inspirational support, my daughter figured a safe place in life for her and a mission of life, so, she stopped to have suicidal thoughts caused for that sensation of not having nothing to do with her life due to her disabilities. Forever, I’ll be thankful with her because she worked with my daughter beyond of her science class. She saved our life’s!

Ms. Symonds ALWAYS meets Julia where she is. In the spring, Julia did not take well to distance learning, and Ms. Symonds and her awesome partner Ms. Ramos worked with us to schedule weekly one-on-one calls instead. When Julia wouldn't immediately participate, they looked for other ways to engage her--often times letting her show them books she "read." If she sees Julia interested in something (books for example), she will gently encourage her to learn more (asking about letters, words) without forcing her. This fall, Julia has shown a tremendous interest in shapes, letters, numbers--all motivated by the online classes. For parents, she keeps us up-to-date and really enjoys seeing Julia and her classmates meet milestones. One final story--last year, when Julia was in school, Ms. Symonds invited her older brother Gavin to help celebrate her birthday. We are so grateful for all that Julia has learned under the tutelage of Ms. Symonds and Ramos.

Ms. Thrasher is a very open-minded teacher who likes to talk about openminded topics like BLM and human rights through Art. She always makes sure that were her priority and she wants to make sure we have fun. Sometimes, even though we don't have time, we like to ask "Can we play Kahoot?". Although she does not have enough time to let us play, she reserves a Kahoot game for next time. She made me believe that ART is not just paintings and drawings, art has true meaning behind it. Sadly, we only have Ms. Thrasher until the end of the term(before we have another Special for Term 2), I hope she knows I learned a lot from her. Not only in Art, but in world-wide topics happening right now. Even though I don't tend to talk a lot in her class, I hope she knows that I really enjoyed it. I remember when we were at her class last Friday (Oct 23) in the middle of class we were talking about what to do for Halloween and we were discussing ideas. Although some ideas seemed out of reach, she recognized them and thought that it was a good idea. -Maedot Kiros

Nura Idriss

Mr. Helsabeck is an awesome teacher, he is my favorite out of all the teachers I ever had. This is saying a lot as school only just started AND it is online. He's the best because he genuinely cares about his students. But I know that is what a lot of students are going to say about their favorite teachers, so I am going to give a specific reason as to why he is my favorite-he connects with you. Mr. Helsabeck shares his experiences in order to relate to yours, and he always starts out his classes by asking, "How are you?" No matter how basic a question this may seem, it means a lot. It shows that he is interested in how your day is going; even if you tell him the most boring details, he makes funny comments or listens to you. On the very first day of school, he asked all of his students about their favorite things to do. I answered, "listening to music, writing, and reading." He said, "well, Nura, we are going to get along great, because those are my favorite three things to do as well." He may have just been being nice to make me feel more comfortable in his class, but that is the whole point. Other teachers would have just smiled and moved on to the next person, maybe saying, "cool," or "nice." Not Mr. Helsabeck. He talked to each person after they shared, in order to learn more about them and connect to them. And, by connecting with us and asking about how we are, plus sharing about his own experiences, he makes for a good person to talk to. You know in this class that you are safe and it will be a happy, cheerful environment. The other thing that Mr. Helsabeck is doing well is that he is teaching really great online. I never expected that a teacher would get a hand of teaching online as quickly as he did. With other teachers, they pile on work or randomly say that we have an assignment to complete that day. Mr. Helsabeck, however, makes sure that we don't work on an assignment for over 30 minutes. He asked us on the very first day to purchase a timer (only if you are in a position to) to keep track of how long you are working. I have one, and it is extremely helpful. I find in his class I am much less stressed and able to get my work done better. When I am in class, I am more focused and prepared because, because of him, I am able to not overwork myself or push myself to hard. I am not trying to say that other teachers aren't good, because I understand and really appreciate all the hard work they are putting into affectively teaching us online. That's why I don't want to say any of them are bad. I just want to say that Mr. Helsabeck is really, really good, and has adjusted really well to online teaching. I really appreciate him for caring about his students and for teaching us in such a great way. Just in general, though, Mr. Helsabeck is more than a good teacher, he's a great person. Many teachers focus way too much on teaching and less on their students. Mr. Helsabeck is different, a kind of teacher I have never had before-he teaches amazingly AND shows that he cares about everyone. I would love to have more teachers like Mr. Helsabeck, and I think if anyone in the world should get an award for teaching and the hard work they put into it, there's no better person then Mr. Helsabeck.

Mr. Schutsky is patient, kind, understanding, and motivating. He encourages all of the students to participate and always positively acknowledges the hard work the class is doing as motivation to keep trying. If the students seem to be struggling with figuring out how to do something he always has a different approach to try to help them learn the lesson. Answering questions in front of other students can be stressful for a child and he helps each student do that really well. He praises them when they know the answer, applauds them for trying, and helps them work through figuring out the right answer when he can tell they are struggling. It is all done in such a safe, non-threatening way. I am also so impressed with how quickly he's adapted to teaching in an online environment and still bring a sense of community to the virtual classroom. Little things like taking time every morning to ask each student how they are feeling and giving them a safe space to talk about why they feel that way allow the kids to feel heard and to learn more about their peers. I also really appreciate that he is open to talk about how sometimes the technology and online class can be challenging even for a teacher.Using those opportunities to weave in discussions about the importance of taking a moment to calmly breath to get through the challenges shows the kids that they are not alone with having a tough time and that there are healthy ways to respond. Mr. Schutsky is a fantastic teacher!

Always attentive to what the students need. Engages with them in their normal environments virtually. Laughs with them but also keeps them on track of the lesson. Gives them "shoutouts" to acknowledge their hardwork during class amongst their peers. Encourages them to participate in reading text and understanding the reasoning of it.

Mr. Weatherly is my favorite teacher. He makes learning music more fun, and he doesn't have punishments that everyone hates. Once when we were in class, someone wasn't sitting down and were jumping around so he threatened to draw a mustache on them with a sharpie! It was funny because that kid didn't get up for no reason for the rest of the week. He also lets some kids come to his class before school for things about class and sometimes just to hang around. Mr. Weatherly is a very friendly person and doesn't want to leave others out. We did fun music Friday where we shared some meaningful music with the class. Mr. Weatherly did a competition on who can do the best woah or who can guess the dinosaur he is thinking of choosing the next person to go.

Ms. Gilliam has injected sense of structure and normalcy to my kindergartner’s life. Moving into the full virtual format this year was very anxiety inducing for our family but Ms. Gilliam’s years of experience with effective instruction shone bright and reassured us that this would be positive experience. Everyday she continues to make the best of an overall difficult situation with grace and confidence that transfers to her students. My student is advancing well, learning new concepts, and maintaining a pleasant emotional demeanor and I think this is due, in no small, part to Ms. Gilliam’s classroom leadership and competence. She is an asset to Whittier elementary and DCPS.

I can write a story about how much Ms. Pope has made a difference in me and my child's life. You don't usually get teachers like her in school , she's straight forward and knows how to talk to the kids and encourage them to want to do better, Ms.Pope is truly and Angel in my eye's , my son never like to read it write for no one and I mean no one but when you place them him Me Pope class things started to change with him, she pushed him because she knew he could better, she always listens to him when he needs to talk or explain why he think he can't do something. Ms. Pope has been there for my son in school and even out of School year and always just a phone call away. She even gave me some tips on how to get him reading and writing making it fun, and yes it works plus he looks at my handwritten and always says I want to write like that. Ms. Pope is his favourite teacher and Loves her kids, he's in second grade now and he was so disappointed that she was not going to be his teacher this year he cried for two days trying to understand why although we explained it to him 100 times lol. She always worked with him over the summer just because he wanted her to help him and if she didn't call ,he will call her ask her why we not on zoom lol. Buttons year she surprise them while they were math virtual learning came on to say hi the look on his face was priceless it made me cry the kids was so happy to see her she let them know that she miss them and just wanted day hi everyone wanted to talk to her but they didn't have time. So he said Ma can we just go to her house or call her she just live up the street. Wow. So this is the difference she has made in my son life truly appreciate all that she had done truly God's Gift to him.

But then Ms. Guillen helped me get started and making sure I got on the right path and it changed me a lot and I appreciate it. When I needed help with something she would help me and tell me what to do. When I was trying to do a sentence, I couldn't and Ms. Guillen helped and it was easy then. Ms. Guillen should earn an award for being such a great teacher and I appreciate her patience and how she helps me when I can't do it myself. Dad says: When we started Pre-K 4 with Nora, she always wanted me to come with her to class when I dropped her off. In Kindergarten, when we get to school gate, Nora often will run to class without me. Some of that is age, but it is also how happy, confident, and comfortable she feels in Ms. Guillen's class. Nora has loved school this year, and at the end of the day is bubbling to share with us everything she's learned. I'm especially impressed with how her her ability to read and write in Spanish has grown exponentially thanks to Ms. Guillen. While the remote learning has been difficult, having daily contact with Ms. Guillen has been so important for Nora. And it has been an unexpected blessing to watch Ms. Guillen teach. We've gotten to see how she showers love not just on Nora but on the entire class and how skillfully she gets everyone to participate and learn. We feel very fortunate to have been in her class.

I do not think we could be thankful enough for having Ms. Guillen teaching our daughter. She was more than a teacher. Not only she followed School Curriculum, but moreover, she taught live skills I am sure our daughter will never forget. She was attentive, sensitive to everything that was happening in and outside of the class. She wanted to know about challenges all kids may had outside of the School boundaries, and always went out of the way to help them learn, always trying to help integrate them all, no matter what their origin, background, or color of the skin. She still comes to our daughter´s birthdays years after being her student. She knew our daughter extremely well, because her goal was to educate a human being. She always had a wise suggestion about how to best educate our kid. She always had time to talk about our kid, and was never in a rush, never unavailable. Ms. Guillen is an outstanding professional, and an amazing human being. We will always be thankful for her dedication, passion for teaching, love for helping in the process of building a human life. She always had a couple of new words posted at the door of the kindergarten classroom. Every child would pronounce those words before entering... sometimes asking them to use a phrase to include those words. She always welcomed each and everyone of her students at the door. That is just an example of many small but important details that makes her an exceptional educator.

Her lesson plans and the subjects she uses to teach English and reading are fun and interesting; most recently learning about Ghandi and other activists. She is very responsive and gives each child a chance to answer questions and learn at their own pace. We have so enjoyed having her as our sons teacher this year.

Mrs. Glover has been such a wonderful teacher for my child, both before and during the pandemic. She teaches the whole child. For example, my daughter was a little quiet in the classroom, and Mrs. Glover encouraged her to find her voice. That was the refrain she used: Find your voice. I've seen my child blossom in Mrs. Glover's classroom, and we are lucky to have her in our lives.

Meeting Ms. Stokes for the first time gave me an immediate feeling of calm. She is a veteran teacher who has “seen it all” and has an innate ability to bring out the best in kids. Henry’s year has gone very smoothly (even taking into account the unexpected curve ball of a pandemic!) He has grown in independence and learned so much academically.

Ms. Thompson is a grown up in a room full of grown ups. She emanates calm and wisdom; it's hard not to feel confident that all will be well when you're in her presence. Earlier this year, I asked her about my son's engagement in reading. He's reading at a 3rd grade level - maybe even better - and I expressed concern about his getting bored. She responded that his reading skills aside, he had room to grow in his respect of other students and empathy; he wasn't always patient with classmates who weren't reading as quickly as he did. So, she had been assigning him books to help expand his kindness, empathy, and social skills. I was amazed that, with the number of children she teaches, and the range of different needs, she was able to identify this growth area for my son and implement a plan to improve upon it using a medium he already loved. She adapted to distance learning in a snap - maybe faster than any of us??? Other 1st grade parents and I text one another that the insanity of the morning suddenly dissipates when we hear Mrs. Thompson's warm, assuring voice. Like, oh, good, she's here to take care of everything. I've often tried to emulate her tone on my own conference calls! I have learned a lot from her as a parent, and look forward to having another child in her class in a few years.

Ms. Nassar has been a part of Amelia's life--even as she has moved beyond 3rd grade. Quite simply, there are teacher and then there are role models and people who shape the idea of what a teacher can be in a child's life--Ms. Nassar is the later. During the school year, she still welcome Amelia and a few of the "big" 4th graders come and clean--a tradition they were so proud to do and I always felt better knowing that there was a "grown up" who spent time with them in a way that empowered them. They all seemed delighted by their company. Even during physical distance learning, Ms. Nassar took the time to send an email inquiring about Amelia, which meant the world to her and to us. Having been around education enough I had heard the term "master teacher", and at Marie Reed, there are really exceptional teachers. And, even among the best in class, there are some that find ways to unlock possibility not yet known even to parents. Ms. Nassar is one such teacher. She helped Amelia see herself as a teacher and to really believe she could push through things on her own--a lesson that is proving ever more valuable in this current era. From Amelia: Ms. Nassar really made a difference in my life by really making me know that teachers aren't just teaching us but that really care about us. She shares her life with us and gives us time to share stories about our lives. When she does teach, she makes if fun--like by using games. She used a puppet show theater and she gave the kids puppets and stories and since she's a bilingual stories and then we could do it in Spanish. Last year for all the kids she did homework, she made amazing waffles and she also made biscuits and sausage. Those made us feel special and also gave an incentive to do homework. She checked in on me when all this madness started, even though I am in fourth grade. She still remembers and loves all of her students. In 3rd grade and some in 4th grade, we enjoyed being with her so much, we put together a group to clean her classroom. No matter what we did, we were always laughing. We would talk about how our life is going, how school is going, how we are doing in general with our family and we usually we would also talk about Bocci--the dog. She's really a great teacher.

She supported me in this strange period, full of boxes and new experiences. Even now she still always helps me a lot and gives me the chance to improve my homework before giving me a low grade. I should say she has a passion for helping her students. She also helped me understand how and when you need to turn in homework (I still have some tini tiny problems, but that’s not my point) and that helped me a lot. She is very dear to me and I will support her whenever I can, like she did with me. I wish her all the best.

I cannot thank enough for Mr. Englehart’s and Ms. Matthew’s strong support and great patience to my daughter throughout her first school year in Marie Reed PK3 program. My daughter has Asian background and her English skills were very limited at the start of the school year. In addition, she hadn’t had any day care experience before joining the school, so I was little concerned if she could do well with other students. However, both Mr. Englehart and Mr. Matthew carefully listened our concerns and tried to help my daughter as much as possible. I am sure that it was not easy to look after a student who doesn’t understand their instructions in English, but both were extremely patient. They gave me a regular feedback on how my daughter was doing in the class and shared a lot of suggestions to improve her behavior and language. After the few months, I was very happy to see that my daughter really enjoyed going to the school every morning and became part of the class. It is very unfortunate that the school has been closed due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, but we are very much looking forward to joining Mr. Englehart’s PK4 class in the next school year.

"She is the greatest teacher. She does school online and I'm glad I get to see her on the video every day. Mrs. Fox says I have superpowers because I got my eye surgery. That's why Mrs. Fox says we both have superpowers, because she also got a surgery." - Andrew Mrs. Fox has a special way of making each child feel special, including my son. He had eye surgery which made his eye very red and many of his classmates had strong reactions when they first saw him (naturally, it was very red!). To make sure he didn't feel bad, Mrs. Fox created this special bond with him about their superpowers. I've always loved that she looked out for him after his surgery. She has also been the perfect teacher to handle his special needs. She took the time to get to know him early in the school year and started adjusting to his learning style right away. She recognized some accommodations he needed and made those adjustments long before we got them written into his IEP. As the parent of a child with special needs, there are few things that give me more comfort as I send my child off to school each day than to know he has a teacher who is aware of his needs, and wants to accommodate him so that he can succeed. She really has been the best Kindergarten teacher we could have asked for! Whether it's physically in the classroom or virtually in a live video class during distance learning, she gives 150% every day and is so very committed to these kids and their growth!

Mr. Martis has been a fantastic teacher ever since the first day of school. I vividly remember arriving at orientation, baffled and overwhelmed. Almost immediately, Mr. Martis approached me told me a little bit about himself, and asked me about myself. This small act was my first interaction at my new school, and it truly helped start to feel acquainted to this new place. Every day in class, we would learn fascinating things about the world around us. I remember, when we were in a unit about space Mr. Martis spent a day talking about the concept of time-one that I find truly fascinating. He talked about how time, rather that a construct in our mind, is something physical that can be bent by strong forces such as gravitational pulls. It was at this moment, when Mr. Martis was talking about the sheer fabric of the universe that I realized how truly an incredible teacher he was, for taking to time to help us see the universe through a comprehensive and fascinating lens. In class, we constantly learned more than facts-Mr. Martis indulged us in unique simulations allowing us to truly understand what we learning, taking our time in the classroom well beyond the curriculum. Not only were Mr. Martis's classes enjoyable, they filled me with awe. The grace with which Mr. Martis taught about complex topics, and demonstrated fascinating principles through different experiments was simply amazing. My favorite, perhaps of these demonstrations was when we were learning about how a material's density impacts how it works. Mr. Martis explained that warmer substances (such as boiled water) are less dense than those that are cooler and therefore they rise. He demonstrated this by dying boiling water red and extremely cold water blue and then pouring them both into one tub. I have no words to describe how amazed I was to see the lessons we had learned in action, the red hot water remained at the top of the container as the blue water sank to the bottom. Not only is Mr. Martis an extremely good teacher, he is an amazingly kind person. If I were ever struggling with an assignment in class, Mr. Martis would make sure to set aside some of his own time either after school, or during lunch to help me. These times made me feel like somebody truly cared for me, and really helped me grasp the complex topics about which Mr. Martis was teaching us. I've enjoyed every moment in Mr. Martis's classroom, so when I found out that our school was switching to distance learning because of the Covid-19 outbreak I was devastated. Despite all the challenges that come with distance learning, Mr. Martis has continued to be a great teacher. Our weekly live lessons are something I always look forward to. During this time, Mr. Martis explains our lesson, goes over assignment, sparks interesting and deep conversations about the topics we are learning about and more. Inevitably, distance learning is challenging, and if I ever struggle with an assignment, Mr. Martis is always available for office hours where he patiently explains to me anything I am confused about. Throughout distance learning I have learned how truly valuable it is to be able to see my teachers in the classroom each day, and every day I am reminded of a truly incredible a teacher and person Mr. Martis is.

At my school, I was constantly bullied. Even though it was mostly verbal bullying, there was some physical bullying. My teacher stood up to me, and stopped the bullies bullying me. This is why I nominated her.

One day at school, I felt lonely. Nobody wanted to be with me. But then my science teacher started to include me in some activities and clubs. Then in one of the clubs, I made my first friend at Alice Deal Middle School. The environment was new to me because I had went to a private school before and everything felt strange to me. My science teacher helped me fit in!

And I like how she make people feel especial and positive, I always tried to give up on sum thing but she was there she would give her Lunch time for uu if uu going to sun thing. She is a GREAT SCIENCE teacher the passion of teaching us makes it relaxing, even tho some student disrespect her and stuff she would show them time. I was doing some wrong stuff at recess she caught me and she told me that like showing love is seatin on someone laps, seen then and now I had never did it again, not because u would get caught I’d because what she is sayin is all true. Even tho her class is Soo Soo Soo Soo hard she would try to make it easy and understandable for us Hispanic learner. People and me be late mostly sometimes I know uu that’s bad but even tho people late and have question she would literally literally HELP YOU.

She welcomed me into the class with open arms and was very enthusiastic when I came in. She seemed really nice. And now she has made learning extremely fun and exciting. I have learned a lot from her. Not only from school, but ways to get along with other people too. She has helped me get back on track when I get very distracted talking to other people or doing whatever besides my work. She's just very inspiring and one of the best teacher's I've ever had.

Ms. Ramirez has changed my life because even though I’m a Spanish speaker, it wasn’t that good my parents were like “your Spanish needs to get better”. Since I started learning with Ms. Ramirez, she teaches me how to speak more Spanish and I got better and also she was there for me and for others too. I appreciate it so much because every time I was sad, she was there for me asking me if I was fine. On her work when I didn’t understand something she was helping me, explaining with details not only to me to other students she did the same thing too and other students that their first language is English now they know a little bit of Spanish and then try to speak it because thanks to Ms. Ramirez she helped them to try there Spanish reading in Spanish translate words on Spanish. When I have a problem I just think about her and go to her and talk to her because she gives me good advice and a hug to feel better when I’m depressed. Thats why I just seen her like my second mom. She is the best teacher I had in my life. She is awesome. She’s nice, caring, funny positive. She made me and other students to stay positive and never give up. I got better on my paragraph. Now that I’m in 8th grade and she keeps teaching 7th grade I just feel happy and lucky to still have her for dance class this time because she kind of teach 8th grade but some of them for presentation.❤️

My teacher has changed my life because she always helped me in many ways. For example, when my family did not have food at home because of Covid-19, she bought us some food with her own money. Also she changed my life because when I felt sad or if I needed someone to be there for me in my tough times she was there for me. She would support me in anything. She would help me in any way possible. Another way she has changed my life is that she would help me pass classes. When I felt stuck on something I asked her to help me and she explained everything to me and helped me out so much. Last but not least, she is the best. She makes me smile all day.

Ms. Assunta Williams, has made a difference not only in my granddaughter Bubble(Ariana's) life but my Wife and I, life. She is a young knowledgeable and caring teacher. I first met her at beginning of this school year. She came for a home visit along with one of Ariana's other teachers Mrs. Hopkins, then again while meeting the teachers at school. She is a warm friendly person. Though it was part of meeting that night, she showed where Bubble sat, and had recognized that Bubble has issues staying focused but did better with minor distractions, so had her sit in front of the room. Bubble did exceptionally well during 1st quarter and was excited about school, come home stating how she participated in class on several occassions. Bubble was dealing with some personal issues prior to Christmas break, and recognized a change in Bubble's demeanor, talked to her, then requested conference with my Wife and I. We discussed the issue, and I felt so good that the teacher, Ms. Williams was attentive to her personal well being other than just class. On another occasion when Bubble did not have something she left in car after I dropped them off, Ms. Williams called me and stated she could meet me quickly before class started to give to her, which she did which was vital to Bubble's psyche. When Bubble has a bag taken from a locker, she recognized the bag a few days later, confiscated it, and gave it to her. She offered to supply her with a lock, which we actually purchased on our own elsewhere, but I felt it was a Great gesture. When Bubble was not doing well she let us know that as well.She has been there for several trips, PTA meetings, and overall a positive influence.

She shouldn't be honored or recognized during teachers appreciate week. I appreciate her every day. She takes her time, she does virtual learning daily she helps the parents and encourages me daily. She stays in communication during the school year and now. She is the most consistent teacher I've had which is very important. She makes you feel secure for sure when you leave your child while you're at work during the school hours!

Thank you Mrs.McCoy and thank you Excel and DCPS for hiring her!! You're the best girl you deserve it all. You're a blessing.

Mr. Zhi has changed my perspective of foreign language teaching. He has always taken the opinion of his students and used it to adjust his lessons to make us more engaged. I remember one time before the bell for 5th period rang, before I walked in, he tapped me on the arm and pulled me aside. He asked me, "Do you want me to be nice to you today, or want me to be serious?" Of course I said to be nice, but since that day he has always asked me the same question, and since that day I have been able to pay more attention in his class and have more fun (because I have ADHD).

This teacher has made such a difference in my life. Before I ever entered CHEC Middle School, no teacher has ever supported me as much as Ms.Núñez. I can trust her, she helps me in class, she tells us if something we’re doing is wrong. On top of that she’s supportive! If anyone in class asks for help she’s there! She’s really busy but she’s always in a good mood. She takes care of her students and never fails to make us happy!

Mrs. Robinson has been warm and inviting since the first day of school. Not only has my sons ability to read exploded, he also loves math and has transitioned really well into distance learning. I believe that a huge portion of this success has been the time that Mrs. Robinson has devoted to crafting live daily lessons as well as small group reading sessions in the last weeks. She is responsive and open to meeting students where they are. While the distance learning has been working well for my son, I know some other families have had a hard time getting their kids engaged and I know Mrs Robinson is doing what she can to meet their needs outside the 2 hour group session time. Mrs. Robinson is exactly what a parent wants in their child’s kindergarten teacher and I only wish we could be with her to wrap up the school year in person!

He has taught me so much in the subject of ancient history. We have learned about many ancient peoples and how they interacted and had fun doing it, like when we were tasked on making board games, comics, and other creative ways to show and represent the rise and fall of the ancient Chinese dynasty's. And now in these uncertain times he has continued to teach us well over online meetings and assignments seeing as we can't meet in person. He also introduced and recruited me to my schools debate team were we debate global issues. I hadn't really known about it before and since then I have really found my calling debating about issues I feel strongly about. He also coaches the debate team for the high school my school feeds into, sacrificing his time to teach and coach both schools. Debate can have a big affect on people's education and careers, and people he coached have gone on to Harvard and other great schools and I hope this will happen to me because of everything he has done.

It was amazing because I got to interact with other I didn't talk to. She helped us understand English a little bit more . I'm just sad that I couldn't have said thank you for everything she did for me. When I wanted to give up she made sure that I didn't give up on anything. My favorite memory is when my friend and I were dancing in class she started to give us that look and we started laughing.

I got put in a math class one grade ahead of me. It was really hard to pass and was very challenging, but Mrs. Lashley helped me through it. Since I had trouble understanding in her class I would go to grit almost every day. Grit is this time where you can show up at a teachers classroom and they will help you do homework, re- due assignments, or understand the lesson they just taught. Mrs. Lashley would always help anyone and go out of her way for anything. Especially during digital learning she would have grit everyday, send emails, update assignment due dates, and have after hours if students needed them. What I most like about Mrs. Lashley is that she would have funny posters on her wall that would help you remember different rules for learning math. It helped when I was in pre- algebra and there was so much rules to follow and many different steps she would sing them to us to help us remember. When we had pie day this year which was a day that was celebrated on March 14th in honor of 3.14. She let us bring circular food to the class to celebrate. We had a fun activity to calculate the circumference of the bubbles that we blew and it was so much fun. Mrs. Lashley is the best teacher. Thank you for becoming a teacher and helping so many kids.

Ms. Thomas has made a difference in my life because she has made me believe in myself when I don't understand what we are learning. She has challenged me and made me go out of my comfort zone, which makes me way more open to new ideas and creativity. She may be an ELA teacher, but with what she has taught me about taking risks and believing in myself, I have improved in other places in life, too. With most teachers I am scared to raise my hand because I am afraid that if I get something wrong they will be mad, but with Ms. Thomas I feel perfectly comfortable sharing my ideas. She pushes my thinking and her ways of teaching are so fun and enjoyable that when I walk into her class everyday, I think "Yes!! Why can't all my classes be ELA?" I have always enjoyed reading and writing, so I knew from the start that I would like her class. I just never realized how much. Ms. Thomas is the kind of teacher where you can have lots of fun in class AS you learn, not the kind of goofing off that happens everywhere else. Sometimes the teachers allow those fun moments, but Ms. Thomas has somehow found a way to be fun as she teaches instead of allowing snippets of fun times. I love her class so much and unlike most others, I just know that her class will be one that I remember the context for instead of forgetting over the summer. 🙂 As we all adjust to this weird time of being online for school, I know that I can count on her to understand what it is like for students, because she admits that it's hard, too, and lets us talk about it. Ms. Thomas is an amazing teacher that ABSOLUTELY deserves this recognition - with her upbeatness and fun side, as well as the best teacher.

I often find myself at times having long conversations with her because she doesn't make understanding your child's progress and goals like a lecture, it's more like catching up with an old friend and hearing about all the exciting things they've been up too. She makes it easy to understand and gives materials to use at home to support with her development. Ms. A always has an upbeat personality which my daughter enjoys because it helps her to have better days when she's feeling down, the extra hugs make all the difference especially when they aren't expected. She makes herself available no matter the hour you need her and always provides her support wherever she can. My daughter has had the pleasure of having Ms. A two years in a row due to her being able to move up with her students when they went to second grade and she loves it and so do I. This allowed us to build an even stronger bond while preparing for my daughter to learn new skills for another grade level. Ms. A. encourages my child to read with confidence (which she struggle with ), not to be afraid and develop a love for reading at all times. She constantly stresses that reading is fun and shows it daily through her teaching. She also incorporates the children's interest and allows them to speak on topics they already know then challenges them to learn even more. Recently when my daughter started the reading clinic and I had concerns about how she was going to get there but Ms. A assured me that we would work together to get her there throughout the program as this would help to increase her reading skills while giving her extra support after school hours.

When my child is wrong she corrects him but also teaches him to learn from his mistakes by equipping him with the essential skills/strategies to be able to except his wrong doing and become a better person the next time around while making better choices. She mentions daily and reminds him and all other children that she comes to school each and everyday just to see them which makes a big difference. When my son came home the first day and said "mom Ms. Snell said we are the reasons she comes everyday (with a smile on his face), I knew that he felt comfortable and would be able to have a great year. It usually takes him time to feel that way about an individual but this took no time at all. Ms. Snell has been there through the rough times that myself and children have dealt with and continue to deal with, her listening ear does not criticize but lends advice and/or peaceful words to help soothe the situation even if it's just a little.

When I came into Deal in 7th grade, I barely knew any Spanish but wanted to learn as much as I could. I bounced around the various Spanish classes until I met Dr. Delgado. He took a chance on me, allowing me into his Spanish Humanities class, despite neither being a native Spanish speaker nor having gone to an immersion school. Although it was extremely difficult at first, he was with me every step of the way. He allowed me to work with him for an entire extra class period during his lunch, every day. I would often spend two or three hours working with him every day, almost all of that his own free time. I started to read La Ciudad de las Bestias by Isabel Allende. After I wrote each summary, he would painstakingly edit it with me for hours to improve my skills. He also introduced me to numerous amazing poems and plays in Spanish which we would analyze. I read and summarized her entire trilogy, La Ciudad de las Bestias, El Reino del Dragon de Oro, and El Bosque de los Pigmeos. Even after he caught me up with the class, he still allowed me to come in for his lunch break every day to further hone my skills. This year we analyzed many poems, acted plays, had class discussions, did debates, and did mock trials. This way we were able to work on our speaking and rhetoric. I have never gotten this kind of critical thinking teaching from any other language class. I am currently reading Allende's La Casa de los Espíritus (The House of Spirits) and analyzing it with him. He also organized a class trip to Guatemala where we had a week of immersion in a small village. We painted a mural in the town and used our conversational Spanish. It was truly a trip of a lifetime to live in a Guatemalan homestay. It was even more meaningful to be on this trip with such an amazing teacher. Through these books, poetic analysis, debates, trials, discussions, and the trip he has brought me from knowing no Spanish to reading high literature and being able to carry a conversation in Spanish. He is a truly amazing teacher who can push everyone to achieve their full potential.

This teacher made a difference in my life by teaching me things I didn't know in 5 grade and by showing me different ways to solve things. I appreciate Ms. Williams in every way and for being a good role model to me as a math teacher you show me that what every you are then be it and thank you for being a good listener sometimes when I need help. To me you are a positive influence.

I appreciate Mrs. Hopkins because she is like my second mother. When something is wrong I can always tell her because I know that she will keep it to herself unless it's something major. Also she has high goals for me to reach because she wants me to be better than her. Thank you Mrs. Hopkins.

Ms.Edwards is fun, nice and she makes sure we get our work done. She is not rude to us and she rewards us when we do our work. During lunch time she send the kids who are finished their work and not hold the whole class like other teachers. She is positive to us in many ways.

Ever since I came to Excel Academy, Ms. Hopkins has always tried to make me feel like I belong here. And she succeeded. I feel as though I can always talk to her, whether it's inside or outside of school. She is a very good listener, and she always gives her honest opinion. For example, one day I was very upset because I had recently had a loss in my family, Ms. Hopkins noticed this and let me spend the whole day with her. She then continuously told me that I would be okay and that she would always be there for me. I greatly appreciate that. She has been an amazing role model and a positive influence on my life. I strive everyday to be a good person, just like her.
