Congrats to our brand new teacher of the week, Mrs. Peiffer from Welsh Elementary School.

Mrs. Peiffer was nominated by Alissa Synowiec. She is the mother of one of Peiffer's students.

Alissa says:

My son’s teacher is amazing. She started off the year with a photo booth and a bag of goodies. She has gone above and beyond to make sure my son is kept safe both in and out of class. My son gets bullied and she watches for it and resolves the issue before it gets worse. She rewards the kids for completing goals and makes sure to make the children feel appreciated and heard. She is a very dedicated teacher and my son is exceeding my expectations in school because of her.

Peiffer won flowers from Broadway Florist, a bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes and a gift certificate from Oriental Trading Company.
