Illinois Teacher Honored for His Remarkable Ways of Making Kids Feel Special
What would seem like almost too much for one teacher, is not for this very special elementary school teacher. One mom shared what makes him so remarkable.
What Makes an Amazing Teacher?
The number of things we could list here would be great, but I think it comes down to just a few things, as one parent writes about in a letter you'll see below. That letter was a nomination letter for this special teacher to be chosen as,
97ZOK's Teacher of the Week
Congratulations to Damon Wurth from Maria Montessori School in Rockford. Damon simultaneously teaches a classroom of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders, which is very much the Montessori method.
Mr. Wurth's nomination letter was written by Lisa Graham, who has a daughter in his class, she writes,
My daughter loves going to Mr. Wurth's class every day and has learned so much from him. He teaches a combination of 1st, 2nd, & 3rd grade at the same time! He makes learning fun. He also makes sure none of the kids have an empty stomach because he brings extra snacks every day for snack time. He is always supporting and encouraging his students and making them each feel special. I love that he always takes the time to send me updates about my daughter and occasionally pictures of special events. The students would love to show their appreciation and make him teacher of the week!
As Teacher of the Week, Damon was surprised with a cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes and money to spend at WM Day Spa.
