Teacher of the Week: Ms. Jones from Ralston Elementary School

Katarina writes:

Ms. Jones teaches 1st grade at Ralston Elementary School. My son loves going to school because of Ms. Jones. I realized at the beginning of the year that Ms. Jones was going to be an awesome teacher. I watched her interact with her students, she called them “sweetie, honey, etc.”, and it was so sweet. On Halloween, she drove around the neighborhood to see “her” kiddos in the costumes. On Thanksgiving she organized a party for the kids and she brought her own home cooked Thanksgiving dinner to share with all the students from her class. Ms. Jones told me that a few of her students called her “mom” and my son sometimes calls me “Ms. Jones”. So funny, but it is always a good sign. I wanted to nominate Ms. Jones as a teacher of the week for a long time, but I also wanted it to come from my son as he spends most of the time with Ms. Jones.

So after a long wait and my son hearing a commercial on 97ZOK, he asked me if we could nominate his teacher, Ms. Jones as a teacher of the week. I asked my son to give me reasons as to why we should nominate Ms. Jones and he said: “Because she is very nice and she deserves it! She deserves it because she treats everybody from the class like her own child and on special holidays, we get to eat our lunch in the classroom. “

So, I searched the internet to find the words to say thank you to Ms. Jones for all the hard work she does every day and this is what I came across: “A teacher - a pillar of support, an epitome of strength, as loving as a mother, as strict as a father, as caring as a friend, a disciplinarian, yet always so approachable and warm at heart. A teacher - a beautiful human being. That's precisely what a teacher is, for every student. Teachers are mentors. They are students' role models. Everything they say feels right. Everything about them looks nice. If you have been lucky to have teachers like these, think... have you thanked them or appreciated them for their noble work?” And I thought that Ms. Jones is exactly that. I thanked Ms. Jones at our last conference, but my son and I wanted to do something very special for Ms. Jones.

Please, please, please, consider Ms. Jones for a nomination as a teacher of the week. I know she would do anything for “her” students. There really are no words to express gratitude for all she does. Ms. Jones is a role model and makes a huge difference in the lives of children.
