Congratulations to our newest Teacher of the Week, Mrs. Reece from Nelson Elementary in Rockford.

Mrs. Reece scored beautiful flowers from Broadway Florist and delicious cupcakes from Sugar Jones.

The winning nomination came from Amy Holt, Amy writes:

My daughter loves her! She's excited to go to school every day because Mrs. Reece makes learning fun!
She rewards them with something called dojo points when they do good to help make them want to do better. They also get to do special things like have lunch with the teacher or have free time with a friend! Having rewards like that makes my daughter want to do well in school.
My daughter has gotten so good at reading and math because Mrs. Reece takes the time to work with them and encourage us to try fun activities at home as well! Her kids go to that school so I think that's great and makes her want to do good for that school! She's a sweet lady and we are lucky my daughter has her as a teacher!
