    Londyn had Ms. Adams for summer school 2021 and she made a huge impact on her during her summer school session. Ms. Adams made sure that Londyn was prepared academically for 1st grade while also preparing her for a second year at Allisonville. As a parent I can tell that Ms. Adams is very passionate about teaching and goes above and beyond for her students.

    There are many reasons why Ms. Adams is an awesome teacher. Ms. Adams is very, very, very, very, very, very kind. They let me know she cares about me because she does not put soooooooooo much pressure on me. They helped me pass test like NWEA. For cheer competitions they cheer me on and inside they cheer me on for test.

    Ms. Jones is definitely an asset to Payne. She is firm, fair, and consistent. She treats the children with kindness that allows them to know she cares and applies enough firmness so they know she means business. She wants all her children to excel and it shows in the way she interacts not only with the children but also with the parents. I am blessed to have her as one of my son's teachers.

    Mrs. Adaso is extreamely nice and such an amazing teacher. She always teaches us during class and she always helps the students in that class. And I love how she always comes up with fun ways to teach the class about math. She would also help me out when I need help with math problems and she would tell me how to do the problem step by step. And when im not feeling okay she would ask me on how i am feeling. I feel more confidence with math thanks to her teaching and fun class. She has always been so caring towards me and has always been so supportive towards me, which I really apreciate a lot, and I think that she's the best math teacher ever!

    This teacher is extremely incredible, She is always very reliable. Can be strict towards students however it encourages us to push our selfs to become the best version of ourselves there is. Understands us and finds ways to make all her students learn the medical subjects since we all have different learning methods and it's extra work for her. Always makes me feel safe around her ;feel comfortable. She encourages me to become the best version of myself even when I'm having a hard time in a class. Pushes me to have the best knowledge and grades there is. Personal life and outside life she is always there for me and I'm extremely grateful.

    Haley Adlam is a patient, caring and attentive teacher. Her passion for teaching has been evident from day one and her enthusiasm made learning that much more fun for my son. My son was born with a disability that has impacted his daily life with cognitive and physical delays and behavior difficulties. Mrs. Adlam proved, leading by example, that Jon has belonged at school, despite all challenges that he presented daily. Teaching a child with a disability requires an unexpected amount of patience. She put in extra effort to ensure he was included, accepted and guided through First Grade with intention. She smiled through even the most difficult days and made us feel like she cared about our son and her entire class. One of the things I appreciated most about Mrs. Adlam was her willingness to communicate with me as a parent. On numerous occasions, she provided feedback on how Jon did during the day. We collaborated on ways to provide Jon the support he needed to be set up for success at school. My child has truly flourished under her guidance. We are so thankful for everything Mrs. Adlam has contributed to Jon's small celebrated successes.

    Where do I begging?! Ms. AFANADOR IS AN Amazing teacher!!! She had my son in first grade and is now a PreK teacher to my neighbor's son. She is a mother of a wonderful daughter who is also a student at Cooper. She commutes daily from out of town. She makes time to greet and meet families after school hours. She is a true professional. Cooper has many, many, many great teachers, a wonderful principal and thriving staff. I choose Sandra Afanador because she is a warrior and a true cowgirl, honestly, appreciation, respect. She is everything a teacher needs to be for her students and everything a mom needs to understand she shame and mom guilt. If she wins this $5K know that more than half will benefit her daughter and her family back in Colombia.
