He recommended that she should get extra assistance whenever she was struggling with mathmatics. He also took the time to fully explain lessons to make sure that his students were absorbing the information given and executing tasks to the best of their ability. When teaching his class virtually, I have witnessed the high positive energy he gives during his classes. Mr. Victor Blackett is a PHENOMENAL MATH TEACHER!

While teaching the children virtually Mrs. White knows the children’s personalities, you gives them confidence that they can do the work and not to give up. Her teaching ability has really helped the children to know the foundation for reading and math. I’m just amazed at how she was able to adapt to virtual learning and made it work for the kids.

As a parent, trying to manage my 4 year old's distance learning has been quite a challenge. Having Ms. White, Ms. Greenfield and Ms. Adams as educators has been a blessing. The amount of patience they have with these fidgety 4/5 year old children simply amazes me every single day. They come to class eager and happy to learn and it is because of their teachers. They make learning exciting and fun and that is what it is supposed to be about at that age. When my son says " I like school" that means a lot especially with everything going on! The words of affirmation that I hear my son say on his own are refreshing and reassuring: "I am smart and I am learning." They truly do deserve a round of applause for how they have been able to pivot in such unprecedented times.

Of all the specials that both of our kids took online this year, Mr. Burdick's Swim class was the standout at our home, hands-down. Definitely not what we could have imagined; online swim class!? But this is how fantastic of a teacher he was. He brought his energy and a sense of humor into the week-long special hour with full commitment. And the kids knew. As a mid-day activity, I imagine teaching the specials to the kids who already spent the morning staring into the screen was not easy task. But not when there's Swim class. My kids, especially my daughter, was all in, and when she missed it by accident (because her parents were not keeping an eye on the schedule) she was quite upset that she missed out on the very last day of the week with Mr. Burdick. One of the silver linings of the pandemic has been that we get to observe the kids being "at school." The swim class was one of these learning experiences that as a parent always a bit of mystery, because it's hard to get detailed stories out of the children who'd often resort to "fine" "good" and "I can't remember." It was a pleasure to observe my kids getting some exercises, laughing, and enjoying being a part of the group for a part of the day. I also want to make sure that the specials teachers are recognized for caring for the large number of students (the whole school!) in unprecedented circumstances, just as the homeroom teachers have. Mr. Burdick's commitment to the online swim class embodies this. Thank you!

Ever since my older child was in Ms. Vega's class, it was my daughter's dream to be in her 1st grade class. And of all years this had to be the year of the pandemic. But it still turned out to be (almost) as good as she had imagined it to be. Having already known her from the hallways of the school from the previous year most definitely helped in building the rapport, but it was especially helpful that she started her day with Ms. Vega. There were mornings when she would (understandably) say she didn't want to do school. But without a fail, as soon as we turned on the Teams session and she sees Ms. Vega on it talking to her classmates, she just had to jump in! And that's all was needed all morning, because once she was on, she was on. I cannot imagine what it takes to teach math virtually to the first graders, but she made it work by using a number of both online and physical resources that are accessible and fun. Her sense of humor and relaxed approach also induced a sense of calm when things were tense and stressful, when we were all living, learning, and working from home in shared spaces. There were periods when our daughter got a little bored and started paying less attention during the class. But Ms. Vega had a very long-term view of the students' achievement and development, and assured to us that this happens even during the "normal" year. We could tell that her years of experience was a strong base of what made her teaching this year so consistent. She understands students, and the students responded by reacting to her confidence that she knew they were going to learn. We cannot wait to thank her in person when we are all on the other side of this covid!

This has been such an incredible year to watch my daughter enter the first grade online and to flourish despite all the challenges. I watched in amazement over the past 7 months how she watches and listens to the instruction intently, raise hands to answer questions, and diligently work on her assigned tasks all the while sitting at her desk at home, staring at a small screen. As a fellow teacher, I know that the teachers made a world of difference to these children whose lives were turned inside out and upside down; and Ms. Smith just was a ray of optimism that my child needed as we waded into the uncertainty last fall. As an advanced reader, it became clear that my child felt unchallenged in the classroom where the teachers had to tend to the needs of others who were still learning alphabets and basic spelling. But Ms. Smith didn't waste any time forming groups of students based on their reading levels, empowering them with their ability to explore and excel at their own pace without forgetting to give even the advanced students the validation that they still needed as young learners. Her creativity in designing virtual field trips, calling on individual students to make sure they remained engaged, and to give every child the feeling that they mattered was impressive --- all the while remaining her composure on the screen. There were days when my daughter would say she didn't want to return to her afternoon class. But as soon as we turned it on "just in case you change your mind" she was always right there with her headphones on, because she wanted to see and hear what was happening. Teaching such young children virtually was likely not something that she was trained to do - but it sure seemed as if she was ready from the beginning. She has always been extremely communicative with the parents, and I am grateful that I got to see her teaching in action, something that I would not have had an opportunity to do under the "normal" circumstance. We are very grateful that my daughter got to be in her class during the first grade, and know that we will remember this year for all the great things that happened too.

Profesor Delgado has always had a smile on his face even when his classroom has some sort of problem. He always makes sure to help you during classwork whether it is online or in person. There have been many incidents where a student misbehaves and Profe Delgado takes them outside and chats to them reflecting about their behavior. Even when people are misbehaving, he devotes time to correct their behavior. Once, when I was misbehaving he said to me, "Would you want students treating your mother like this (my mom is a teacher)?" I immediately responded, "No." He made me reflect on my behavior without just taking his anger out on me. What makes Profe Delgado so unique and such a special teacher is that he plans his lessons so that his students have fun. For example, he always sings, "La gallina turuleca" in class to lift students' spirits. Lastly, Profe Delgado cares about each and every student of his and that is why he always asks us in the beginning of our lesson, "How is everyone feeling?" and "Did you do anything exciting this weekend?" or "What do you have planned for this weekend?" Profe Delgado is the BEST!

My child has been fortunate enough to have Ms. Perrin as her math teacher twice now, and that has made such a difference in the way she feels about math, how she approaches working on it, and the confidence she has in herself , Ms. Perrin taught an online summer math acceleration class my daughter took last year. It was a challenging course and quite intense, but Ms. Perrin made it engaging, well paced, and interactive., She was excellent at explaining things in different ways to help students grasp new concepts and work toward real understanding. She was always patient, respectful, and able to guide kids through any frustration they were feeling with the effort. She always made time to give extra help when needed and gave our daughter personal encouragement and feedback that made all the difference in her confidence. Ms. Perrin's dedication to her students and the sheer amount of time we know she spent teaching, creating lesson plans, and grading and providing feedback on student work was really impressive. More than once I or my husband remarked, "I don't know how she does it." After successfully completing that summer math course, my daughter was happy to learn Ms. Perrin would be her math teacher for the regular school year. She has really enjoyed learning math this year and has built a solid understanding of algebraic concepts through Ms. Perrin's instruction. In addition to being an outstanding teacher,, Ms. Perrin is a terrific role model for young girls to help them see that learning and using math can be an exciting opportunity and tool in the world. She is dynamic and connects well with middle-school-age kids, and we have been pleased o hear her talk to students about how concepts are used in or illustrated by real-world scenarios.

This would have been no small feat of the kids were in-person, but this was all over Microsoft Teams.

My name is Emerson See, I'm into computer stuff, playing video games, and reading. Before I had Mr. Sommer's class, I would always have art, my least favorite subject. Before I had Mr. Sommer, ELA was usually my least favorite class. Though I liked reading and the subject, in the past my teachers for ELA weren't my favorite at all. Before I had him, I was concerned he would turn out like my old teachers, and I wouldn't like him. Mr. Sommer is my ELA teacher, I have him for my B2 class on Tuesdays and Fridays. In the beginning of the year, he was kind, smart, and happy, throughout the year Mr. Sommer has never seemed angry or mean, and has always made sure that his students are there working hard. Mr. Sommer motivated me to work hard on whatever assignment I'm doing, in his class or not. When he knows that there is some sort of problem in the world, whether its the coronavirus, or just something that might feel bad for the students, he's able to make sure that we're ok and we are prepared to work. He's willing to stop the class to make sure that we feel ok, despite losing the class time. When he does this, he shows us he cares about us, and that he's willing to stop class for us. Whenever we need someone to talk to, I hear other people asking to stay after class to talk to him about problems, or anything else. In that class, I feel good about myself, and especially about my teacher. Recently, I've been more motivated to work hard in that class, and I'd give full credit to my teacher. Even if I do something wrong or make a mistake, he doesn't yell at me like some of my other teachers, he's always calm about it. A week or two ago, I did really well on an assignment, even though it was just a paragraph, I felt good submitting it and telling him I was done, and him telling me it was as good as I thought just felt good, I thought I had worked hard, and he thought I had done well. My parents have also noticed my work getting to be a little better, usually my parents want me to CC them whenever I send emails to my teachers, and recently, I had to do that. They saw my email and thought it was really good, and the reason it was really good was because Mr. Sommer taught us how to write emails better in the beginning of the year, and I remembered that. I'm grateful that he does these things for us, even though he doesn't have to. I used to think my A days ( on Monday and Thursday) were better, because of the huge 2 and a half hour break in between my second and third class, but now I look forward to my B days, mostly because of him. Words aren't enough to describe Mr. Sommer, every time I say he's a good teacher in words it feels like I'm not giving him enough credit, he's one of my favorite teachers I've ever had.

Almost all teacher's main objective is to teach their students information about the topic in which they are to teach. And if there's one thing I'm sure about, it's this, Ms. Pitney is one of the most creative teachers you'd ever come across, knowing all the work any teacher might have, it's surprising how they can balance all these hard tasks over the course of the school year. In some ways, a teacher works harder than a student. Making sure that we kids can learn, has its own mistakes, not every time are teachers correct, but they try their very best to help, because in case no one noticed, we're all human. For someone to have that urge to come every day to help children, is a passion, it's not forced, unless for pay of course. In Ms. Pitney's case, she shows the happiness that can make anyone smile, and have anyone be able to feel secure, in fact, every teacher in my life has inspired me to become a teacher, and Ms. Pitney further inspires me as well. Many teachers not only want to teach education, but want to be a mentor, and even if no one has explained, or wanted that role, Ms. Pitney has definitely earned it. What I as one individual wanted to explain by this paragraph as a summary is that Ms. Pitney's dignity is far above what most humans can retain.

My son and I wanted to thank Ms. Young for taking on a big group of virtual PK4 students on top of her regular PK 3 class when their PK4 teacher returned to in-person teaching. Virtual learning for PK students - and using the new technologies that go with it - had really thrown her for a loop (as it did all of us!) last year when my son had her for PK3, we were surprised and delighted to see that she's set up a really great schedule and learning-based activities for the kids now. PK is such a hard age to teach virtually and she's really figured out how to keep them engaged. And she knew that having both the PK3 and PK4 students together on the screen would be too many, so she had to set up a second morning session and small group session for PK4 students, effectively doubling her teaching time. We applaud teachers for their flexibility, persistence, and hard work through the pandemic!

Then she explained to me that the power did not, in fact, apply to the number before the variable. Also, during a support session in which I was in to work on my Required Curricular Task, there was a student who was having difficulties with something their class was working on for a month or so, and Ms. Harris never lost her cool, which I thought was really impressive of her.

Ms. Baker has 2 tiny children at home and volunteered to come to teach in person at Deal on Wednesday mornings to help children that have been struggling with virtual learning. Our son Asher was lucky enough to get a spot in person on Wednesday mornings with Ms. Baker. She is a science teacher but is now teaching all subjects on Wednesday mornings- she is learning all the subjects so that she can help teach and support her children on Wednesday mornings. Our son Asher tells us that Ms. Baker is so nice and that he is learning a lot and getting caught up. He is so much happier now that he has this in-person time with Ms. Baker. It is making a big difference for him.

I'd like to recognize Ms. Beliveau for taking the time to connect with our child who was having difficulty with a home situation as well as virtual learning. Often times we talk about not letting children slip through the cracks and with virtual learning it is hard to connect with students at times or vice versa, it is hard for students to connect with their teachers. Ms. Beliveau was not only proactive but took an interest in having an open and transparent conversation with our child to figure out ways she could be successful in class with this new term. Educators teach, but those who are truly passionate about the lives of their students go above and beyond their line of duty to make their students feel listened to and cared for. Thank you, Ms. Beliveau! You've empowered our child and made her feel that she matters and she is cared about.

I appreciate my teacher Ms. West for educating my entire 8th grade on Black Lives Matter this week for Black History Month. She took the time out of her days to let us know what Black Lives Matter is really about and what it means. She taught me things even I didn't know about the movement. For example, I didn't know that the movement was started back in 2013 because of Travon Martin and I didn't know that the movement was created by 3 black women. I just assumed that the hashtag was created and it went viral. It is important that we are educated on these topics being black in 2020 and still facing these problems, so I thank Ms. West for the opportunity.

These few weeks Ms. Townsend has been so consistent. Her energy, workload , and her interaction with the students stay the same. She encourages them to think bigger, to think hard, and to practice the skills or lessons they were taught. She constantly reiterates to them that participating is Important for their learning. Even if the answer is incorrect, participating can get you the right answer. She challenges their thinking. She’s truly a star teacher and my family appreciate her so very much.

Mrs. Mulligan and Mrs. Thorne as a team of teachers have done an amazing job of setting high (yet realistic) goals for their students this year, and modeled how to strive and persevere in the face of unprecedented challenges. Teaching online all day while taking care of their own children at home is a challenge that is beyond our imagination, but they made no excuses for it and charged forward since day one of the academic year. Our son initially struggled to stay focused or on task, and as we struggled to help him stay on course, we often received concrete and thoughtful inquiries and advice on how to keep him engaged. Realizing that his teachers cared and noticed when he was not fully involved made a remarkable difference in how he approaches his learning, and we believe that shows how much the trust and respect toward the teachers matters in making the education meaningful to the students. The fall of 2020 was distressing time, with the political uncertainties and social divisions intensifying leading up to and following the presidential election. The teachers leaned into the students' inquiries into these issues, and created a safe place to engage in a critical dialogue on these topics. This was most evident after the Capitol insurrection on January 6th, with many students feeling particularly close to the matter because of our residence in the District. We overheard the conversations the teachers led with the students the very next day, listening to what they had to say, offering a space to safely ask, share, and digest the events from the previous day, when many of the adults were still processing it ourselves. Since the beginning of the year, Mrs. Mulligan and Mrs. Thorne have balanced acknowledging the extraordinary nature of this year, while also creating a sense of normalcy as best as possible despite it all. We are so grateful for their dedication to the students and their families, and for embodying optimism and confidence when we most needed to believe in them.

In class we are doing a project where we have to record our selves talking about a social justice issue we are passionate about and then share that audio recording with the whole class. I was very worried about having the whole class listen to me speak even though it was recorded before-hand but Mr. Helsabeck said that because I feel uncomfortable with that I could only send it to him. I am very happy that he is so understanding and is still helping me take risks, just smaller, more manageable ones. Mr. Helsabeck went out of his way to help me with that and I really appreciate it.

Mr. Brown is excellent as a homeroom teacher. He has skills and experience in this situation he applied that experience and skills. I saw many times, he tried his best to teach, never was impatient because it is totally different learning process that I think is not easy. Kids are not physically, present with their teacher. I am satisfied with his teaching and my kid is improving her learning.

At the start of this academic year, were not sure how virtual preschool would go. However, we have to give massive kudos to Mr Englehart! He has made virtual learning fun. From morning meetings including songs (that our son continues to sing all day long), to virtual story time, and really engaging small group meetings, Mr Englehart has really connected with our son. During their one-on-one conversations (which are Liam’s favorite classes), he takes the time to ask questions about Liam’s latest LEGO creation, and the latest adventures of Liam’s stuffed animals. Despite never having in-person interactions, Mr Englehart has built an incredibly strong bond with our son and has inspired a love of learning and building. We are very grateful to all the time, energy and passion Mr Englehart has for his students!!

My homeroom/science teacher Ms. Lee is very mindful and supportive. An example of this was after the Capitol was rioted she set aside time in class and homeroom to check up on everyone and asked about how they were feeling. She let the class talk about what happened too. She didn't want to take away or make light of the situation and didn't even share that it was her birthday until the very end of class! She also is willing to give up her free time to help or support her students. I am in a Podcast club and when we needed teacher interviews for the podcast my first thought was Ms. Lee. When I emailed her asking when and if she was available she responded immediately and said we could do it right after the weekend ended. We did it Monday afternoon and she was open sharing about her life in the interview and very cooperative. There have been many more times when Ms. Lee has been her amazing self

I love how he understands that we are in a difficult time right now and life isn't the same as it was before, but he still tries his best no matter what to give his students the best learning experience. In class when we may not understand something, he spends time with us to make sure that we understand what he's teaching us before we move on to the next class. If we don't understand one way of teaching, he will try another one. And if we don't understand that way, he will try another one etc. He is very persistent on making sure we understand everything he teaches us while still making class fun at the same time. Thank You Mr. Burt!

I am in 7th grade at Alice Deal Middle School. I have always liked school but science has never been my favorite class. It has just kind of been a constant in my life. I didn't actively dislike it, I just didn't like it that much. But this year, when I came into my first science class of the year, Ms. Newman smiled at all of us and asked us about ourselves. She makes science about our lives. For example, in the Nearpod, she always asks us things like, "When was one time when your heart was beating fast?" And she went on to ask us more about those experiences and connect them to the circulatory system or whatever we were learning about that day. She always has a smile on her face on the Microsoft Teams call. She genuinely cares about her students and it shows. Every day when we go into her virtual classroom, she asks, "What was something good that happened to you this week?" Whenever I'm having a bad day or I am feeling sad, Ms. Newman makes me feel better.

Ms. B has literally been the most inspiring teacher I have ever had. She is so kind, thoughtful, sweet, funny, wise, and she's family. We also have a lot in common! When I was at my lowest you were always there to help me and I really just want you to know that you have impacted my life so much. I met Ms. B my sophomore year, and the minute i heard your joyful and loud voice i knew she was going to be someone to keep me up in class. She is one of the teachers I know that is honestly passionate about her job, and even when things were tough she still pushed through. That is something I will always see in her that want for myself. I want to be strong like that, and thanks to her I am never going to give up even when things get hard for me. Like Ariana says, "Thank U Next". I love you soooo much Ms. B and hope when you open this you feel all the love and happiness I have while writing this. Hope you are doing well and staying safe <3 Hugs & Kisses Alysia

This teacher made my life different, first of all I am not born in the United States and my level of English is not very high like my other classmates, so when I do not understand something very well in English he tries to help me explain it in different ways, too. He tries to explain sometimes in Spanish but it is not often, because he always says to listen more in English so that I can learn very quickly. He helps me to know more about the English language and to make the level of my English higher for me when we were in classes.

We can hear Elise from the other room, calling out answers and really loving being a part of the virtual classroom. One a few occasions, I've been able to overhear some of the classes and have marveled at what can only be described as the saintly patience of Ms. Delaney, keeping all the students engaged while encouraging them to stay focused. It must seem like an exercise in herding cats to her, but it creates a calm and stable learning environment for her students, where they all get a chance to participate. Elise loves school and all her teachers. That's no accident. It's the result of the hard work and dedication of all her teachers, with Ms. Delaney at the helm.

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.

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

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.

My name is Thu. I come from Vietnam and now I'm in 8th grade at Whittier EC school. 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. I will be so sad because next year, I cannot meet you anymore my lovely teacher.

My old schools never really taught us a lot of Spanish. I could never really hold a conversation or know basic vocabulary. Now, I know a lot of new words and phrases all thanks to Ms. Gonzalez! It has been really fun to be able to speak and understand Spanish much more easily. I love knowing that I am actually becoming better at a language and might start to be able to hold up a conversation in Spanish. Another thing I really like about Ms. Gonzalez is that her class is really fun. We got to watch a TV show for a few weeks and it was fun to watch. I can sense that my Spanish is getting better already!

Ms. West is just an amazing, well rounded teacher. She is so caring of her children. She is always happy to teach, and always having a smile on her face no matter what. She makes learning fun, and interesting. I always remember coming to school very early just to see Miss West and talk, or to help her. My friends and I were always with her. In the mornings, afterschool, and during lunch. She is one of the adults at Whittier that make me feel loved and appreciated. Were all like one big family, she even calls me and my friends her grandchildren. We truly feel like we are. She always goes above and beyond for us. Even when Ms. West was thinking about retiring, we were all telling her she couldn't and that she needed to stay with us. I will forever love Miss West, and I appreciate everything she has done for me and everyone at Whittier! We love you Miss West!!

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.

Ms. Khan has been an awesome ELA teacher for my daughter this year. She is excited to attend her virtual classes and participate in her class discussions. Ms. Khan is very creative with her lesson plans and uses videos, songs and other things to engage students. Additionally, she holds all of her students super accountable. My daughter completes her tasks on time because she wants to make Ms. Khan proud. She Rocks!

I know my teacher as Ms. Herndon. Ms. Herndon is a good teacher because she is flexible when there is a problem. She also always encourages us to do our best and try. She also never gives up when there is a problem. Like the time when I couldn't find the notebook in One Note, she took the extra step of resending the notebook to me. She also has really creative ways of teaching. She uses simulations and other resources and different ways of explaining.

I had never been that good at science. My old school didn't take a lot of time out of our school day for science so my grade would be much lower. Ms. Osman has been teaching me so well and making sure that I am getting as much knowledge as possible. I have really been learning a lot of new stuff about how the world works and space. I love coming into class every day and hearing funny jokes and learning new things. I am very grateful for Ms. Osman and all of the work that she puts into teaching me and everyone in our class. My grade is an A because of all of the methods and all of the powerpoints you show us. Love learning new things and your class has really brought that to me. Thank you so much for all the work you put into class every day.

Ms. Henley has been very direct about the math I learn so quickly in her class. She is always making sure we know what we are doing. I am in 7th-grade math and I am a 6th grader she knows if I am struggling or if I am not. She can help out and explain things very easily. To add to this we were in class one day and she went over something all over again because she could tell that I was struggling with that thing. She takes time out of her day to help each individual student. One other thing that I think is really amazing of her is that she sends emails all the time to us. I think this is really helpful because I get to keep track of things so easily. Lastly, Ms. Henley always reminds us if we have work due. She says it multiple times which I find very helpful throughout the term.

In my old schools art was never a big part of your grade. We never got big assignments. The teachers in my old schools were great, but they didn't quite teach me new techniques in art. Ms. Thrasher really helped me learn and grow. I REALLY enjoyed art class this year. I got to make and capture amazing photography which I would have never thought of taking before. 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 enjoyed art so much because of her. (The file I added is one of the digital art pieces I drew in class)

Earlier today I was doing an assignment where you had to answer questions based off of a picture. I could not see the picture and so I emailed her. Literally 2 seconds later she responded, and inserted the picture so I could complete the assignment. I felt like that was really great of her and I appreciated it. I also like that Ms. Wikander explains all the steps to an assignment, she seems like she really understands that learning online is hard and she goes out of her way to make it easier.

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.

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."

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")

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.

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.

Ms. Osman has also dealt with technology issues during online school/distance learning well too. When she had problems with a specific online tool, she would find another solution so that we would still be completing our work.

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

This virtual learning has been unique but Ms. Khan made sure to listen to the parent's concerns and suggestions, assess the child's individual needs and formulate learning instruction to incorporate the parent's and child's needs. I'm thankful my child has her as an ELA teacher.

My favorite teacher is Mr. Jefferson, because a few days ago one of his methods helped me on my test in middle school. Also he was very nice and he taught me life lessons like “don’t give a man a fish but teach him how to fish”and it helped me when I want to tell someone the answer but I remember that quote every time.

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!

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.

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.
