Congratulations to our newest Teacher of the Week, Mr. Pirrello from Bloom Elementary School.

Mr. Pirrello was rewarded with beautiful flowers from Broadway Florist and delicious cupcakes from Sugarjones.

Pirrello was nominated by Manuel Garcia. Garcia says:

Mr. Pete (Pirrello) is the best teacher ever, anytime there is an assembly or a special event at school he enters the gym and you here everybody cheer his name loudly as he walks in, he makes everything he does fun and you do not seem to ever be sad as he can always put a smile on your face by just walking in.

Ask all of Bloom Elementary or walk in on an assembly day and see how we cheer his name. He believes we are all equal and believes in each one of us he always tells you what a good job you did. That is why I nominate Mr. Pete.
