    My name is Massiel Perez I have a four-year-old son that attends Whitter Elementary school. Before my son started school in person in the fall of 2021, I experienced an immense amount of fluctuating emotions. My son Mohamed was non-verbal, experienced occasional emotional outbursts, and it was his first time going to school. I was unsure of how he and the teachers would receive each other. In June of 2020 he was given a provisional diagnosis of autism. That same year he began virtual classes, but it wasn’t as effective as I’d like. I was still very worried on how things would be once in person classes became available again. The following year he began in person classes with Ms. Khadijah Adiodum and it was the smoothest transition I could’ve asked for. Before the first day of school Ms.K (as we call her ) extended an invite to her class room. Visiting the classroom before the first day of school, gave us a chance to meet Ms. K in person. It also gave Mohamed the chance to see and get a feel of the environment he would be in. After our visit with Ms. K at the school I felt very positive about his first day, and I knew that Ms. K would be the perfect teacher for my son. Ms. K is very special to me and my son because she has been a key component in my son’s growth over the course of the school year. Before my son started school in person his vocabulary was very limited. He barely knew his colors and numbers. My son vocabulary has improved so much he surprises me every day with new words, and he is able to identify many objects. My son walks around identifying all the colors he sees in sight. He is now able to express himself a bit more which has help calm his emotional outbursts. Ms. K is always available to address any questions or concerns. Ms. K goes above and beyond for my son and her students. In the beginning of the school year, I experienced a hiccup at the school with my son. There was an incident in after care where my son’s emotional outbursts got the best of him. I expressed to Ms. K that I was thinking of withdrawing Mohamed out of after care, and she quickly came up with a solution. Ms. K expressed to me how she feels aftercare is beneficial for Mohamed’s growth. As he can interact with other students who vocabulary is more advance and how it can expand his social skills. She introduced me to extend day where Mohamed will stay in her class until 4:30pm and then head to aftercare until my arrival. Mohamed was officially diagnosed with autism in the fall of 2021.Ms. K doesn’t place my son in a bubble based on his Autism diagnosis. She sees so much potential in my son, and she is helping him achieve all his goals on His IEP. In preparation for upcoming school year Ms. K has been informing me of the next steps for my son educational growth. She has provided different options she feels will be the most beneficial form him. I am very grateful to have Ms. K as Mohamed Pre-k4 teacher. She has help him in so many ways. Mohamed has improved so much, and we can all see the difference in his vocabulary, behavior, and interactions with others. Whittier is an amazing school with an awesome staff. We look forward to next school year. This school year has exceeded my expectations and its all thanks to Ms. K. Her hard work and dedication for my son and his classmates does not go unnoticed. She is genuinely a very loving and caring teacher who is making a big impact in my sons’ life. It’s not easy being a teacher and Ms. K does with effortlessly.

    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.Acevedo is honestly a great teacher. She is excited about teaching the subject that she teaches and makes us feel enthusiastic about it as well. Every day she always asks how we are doing and what type of mood we are in, I think this is great for students mental health. She recognizes students who excel the most and those who go above and beyond in their creativity. She makes me feel better because even if students get a relatively high score she knows the potential in students and pushes the students to go further than that. If I ever have any questions she answers them, she also gives me feedback on my work and tells me what to improve on, this helps me achieve my goals.

    Ms Acevedo Makes science fun I never liked science I always hated it and never understood it too well until I went to Ms Acevedo's class I started to understand more. My favorite is the mini lesson watching the video and filling in the blanks then raising my hand to share my answer. When Someone does not know the answer Ms Acevedo comforts them to try their best. Ms Acevedo has supported me out and inside the class room when I was struggling with math she offered to help with what ever i did not understand.

    What makes this teacher awesome is that she is a very fun and energetic person who brings joy to my day, she is a great teacher (I learn a lot from her) and she is also a very strict teacher, she focuses on her students education and does her best (her class is also my favorite class) Something that Ms. Acevedo does to make me excited to go to her class is she does her best to make the learning fun (which it is for me) and she rewards those who learn well The way she lets me know that she cares is by showing up every day and teaching Ms. Acevedo helps me overcome my educational struggles by explaining what we are learning step by step and learning this process has made me more confident that I can do my work independently and know i'll get it right, i'm not always right though and she always helps me figure out the problem and get it right She supports me outside of the classroom by first starting in the classroom by giving me knowledge and skills that I use daily, i'm very thankful for her
