Congratulations to Judi Flodin from Caledonia Elementary in Illinois, she is our Teacher of the Week.

Judi was nominated by Jessica Taromina, she writes,

The last 2 and a half school years could not have gone better for my daughter without Mrs. Flodin. She is beyond deserving of Teacher of the Week. Teaching these little ones, ages 3-5, is hard work but she makes it look effortless. Being in her class has done amazing things for Sophia and for that, I will forever be grateful. Being a kid with special needs is hard and being a parent of a special needs child is hard but having teachers and staff like Mrs. Flodin is heaven-sent. Sophia wakes up every day so excited to go to school and "see Mrs. Flodin". Sophia doesn't really see 'school' for what it is and that's all thanks to an amazing teacher who has such a love for these kids that it's just a fun couple hours with friends and teachers. 2 and a half years is not enough for Sophia and we will be sad when we have to move on to Kindergarten. Thank you, Mrs. Flodin and all the pre-K staff at Caledonia for helping me raise this amazing little girl and all her friends.
