Congratulations to our brand new teacher of the week, Mr. Reynolds from Cathedral of St. Paul school in Rockford.

Mr. Reynolds won delicious dessert from Nothing Bundt Cakes and beautiful flowers from Broadway Florist.

Reynolds was nominated for the honor by one of his students, Claire Winterton, Claire writes:

Mr. Reynolds should be the teacher of the week because he is the best teacher there is!!!!! He makes all his lessons fun. He makes jokes about what people did back in the day!!!! He does these things called simulations where you act like you are one of the knight in the mid evil times or a Spartan in ancient Grease. He makes games for them and we get to choose our names and we get to make a name tag.

Everybody in the 6th grade loves Mr. Reynolds!!!!! He is a great teacher to have for History. We talk about current events that are happening in the world every day while we are doing our worksheets form the lesson we learned that day.

We talk about what was on the news and what is going on in Rockford or what is going on in the United States or other countries. He really wants us to learn a lot from what he his teaching us. He always make everything we do in his class super enjoyable. He always makes funny jokes about us and himself! He is the best teacher ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
