    Mrs. Alden made 2nd grade the best grade ever! I had so much fun in 2nd grade. Some things that I looked forward every day is the “Creation Station” where you can play with Legos and other stuff. Mrs. Alden also gives us lots of tickets and every Friday she will pick one student from the tickets! Every Wednesday we called people at Yale via Google Meets and we worked on math related work. It was probably very hard for Mrs. Alden to teach my class because she taught our class right after Covid-19 and we all had to where masks. Mrs. Alden helped me out of school because whenever a few of my friends and myself would get 4’s (A’s/A+’s), Mrs. Alden would get us ice cream and that was great! She made my whole class feel confident by making us speak in front of different classes while at the same time making it fun. Anyway that is why I think she should be recognized as one of the best teachers ever!

    This teacher was my 2nd grade one, she was the nicest teacher so far. Once she came to my birthday party and it was great! She supported me in pursuing my path to learning more about English Language Arts, and being nice and energetic and not dull and boring. Me and this teacher have a connection, she taught me a plethora of things that could support me in the higher grades! She was the best and nicest teacher, which is why I chose to honor Mrs. Alden!

    Mrs.Alden is awesome because she is really positive all the time. She is really cheerful and makes school fun. She lets me know by playing with me and my friends. She makes me feel better and confident by encouraging me. She supported me by having a good mood inside the classroom and she was a good role model so that it influenced me to do better things outside the classroom.

    Mrs. Alden is the best teacher I've had. She pushes you to be your best self. She is also kind and considerate of the students, staff, and the space around her. She will light up a room. She is full of laughter and that's what made me wake up everyday. She always makes sure that everyone does their work. That's why Mrs. Alden is the BEST!!!

    My teacher is awesome because second grade was kind of hard, with COVID and all, but they helped me push through the final months. Another reason that my teacher was so awesome was because she was strict enough that she kept the class in control, but she was kind. You weren't afraid of her because she was so nice, and she taught very well. Even in remote learning, she made class interesting enough that you wouldn't log off. These are only a few of the reasons why she was so amazing.

    Mrs Alden is a amazing teacher she made teaching fun even when we were online she sent fun packets with treats and we could watch the movie after we read the book. She did fun prizes and was just generally awesome. I feel like she made it so I believed that education could be fun and then I started liking it better and wasn't as bored with school.Even after 3-4 years we still visit her and she helps us with work or if we get good grades she congratulates us.
