Jen surprised Mrs. Neer’s Ptarmigan Ridge Intermediate School’s 5th Grade Class today, to tell the teacher that she was STAR's Teacher of the Week! Aside from a tropy, Mrs. Neer was given $100 for a classroom scholarship, a $50 Sky Nursery gift certificate and a makeover courtesy of Blanc N’ Schwartz Salon.
Brandon Singleton is the student who nominated Mrs. Neer and this is what his mother had to say:
My son has said from the first week of school that he feels so lucky to have Mrs. Neer as his teacher. She makes every day fun. She challenges the kids. She spends a huge amount of her own personal time and money in the class. During school functions her name is brought up all the time for student and teacher recognition. All the kids love her, and continue to go back and visit her even after they have moved onto other grades. She also is a busy mom and wife. My son has blossomed in this class this year. I owe so much to her for helping prepare my son for middle school next year. This is an unforgettable teacher and we are proud to have her in our school district. She is like a rock star and is so deserving of public recognition.
Congratulations to Mrs. Neer and if you have a very special teacher in mind you'd like to nominate, head over to see our contest rules! And this weekend, contact that favorite teacher of yours and tell them the impact they made in your life.
