    Mr. Osei has helped me through a lot this year in French and in homeroom. I have been having a lot of technical problems and he always helps me with them and understands and helps me participate. He also is very nice and understanding and he tells you when you are missing assignments so that is very useful because we can then turn work in on time.

    Ms. A as we call her has been my granddaughters teacher for two years - first and second grade. My scholar has become excellent in her reading skills and even after homework has been completed she is still reading books. Her thirst for learning is never over. Ms. A also boosts the kids self esteem with free haircuts all year long for our male scholars. Just an awesome person inside and out.

    Ms. A is truly a kind, helpful and dependable person. She goes above and beyond to make sure that my daughter gets the content and offers extra time to assist with any questions. 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 I needed her she was there and sat through my daughters tutoring session when I couldn't make it and spoke to her mentor afterwards to see how she was doing. Ms. A. goes above and beyond to make a difference in my daughters life and many other children and I appreciate and am grateful for each and every moment she has with her.

    My teacher, Mr. Abusam is a great teacher. He is an excellent teacher because he recognizes the students who actually do their work. He also treats bad situations with care and respect. Mr. Abusam is one of the most loved teacher of the 7th grade in general. He also explains the math work that he does so that all students get A's. Mr. Abusam might be the best teacher of the 7th grade and that is why he should be recognized as an excellent teacher.

    Ms. Alexander is the kind of teacher that every parent hopes that their child has. She cares deeply about her students and their success which comes across through all interactions with the student and the teacher. Our son struggled during the beginning of distance learning, trying to get him to be in class and engaged was tough. Ms. Alexander stepped in right away to not only make us aware but also took the time to have a very meaningful conversation with our son. She explained to him kindly, but firmly, the importance of his learning and how he had the opportunity to be a leader. Ms. Alexander's investment in Thomas made him want to get to class and ensure that he was on time and ready. She realized his individual strengths and leveraged those to make him a student who is eager to learn ELA. He proudly tells us how ELA is his favorite subject. When he signs off from ELA he comes bursting into the room to tell me about what he learned and an action that he is going to take. I appreciate that Ms. Alexander helps students understand their role in the world too, how they can help the environment, be better people, and contribute to society. She really is one of those teachers our boys will always remember fondly even as they move up through the grades.
