Congrats to 97ZOK's brand new teacher of the week, Laurie Pellant from Fairview Center School.

Pellant was nominated by Kristine Caballero.

Cabellero says:

Ms. Laurie has been such a treasure for my son, Eli. Eli has some extra struggles in the classroom. Ms. Laurie consistently goes out of her way to make sure his needs are met. She goes out of her way to work the student’s interests into the classroom!

She found out Eli loves fishing and within days had brought in a fishing game as a center. She’s encouraging and always finds the bright side even during a rough patch. I’m so thankful my son was placed in her classroom. We are so grateful for Ms. Laurie and would be so excited for her to be a teacher of the week!
