Wisconsin 5th Grader’s Adorable Thank You Letter to His Math Teacher
The young man who wrote this letter about his teacher wrote it straight from his heart. He surprised me with where he used the word "love".
The Highlight Reel
I can always count on one segment of my daily show on 97ZOK to deliver a highlight for the week, it's the reason for this letter I'm sharing with you. During the school year, we ask families to write letters to us about the teachers they love. Past or present, we just want to read stories about these remarkable human beings who dedicate their lives to our children's education.
Because of those letters, we're able to do exactly what this 5th grader most wanted us to do.
97ZOK's New Teacher of the Week
Congratulations to Brice Gustafson from Fruzen Intermediate School in Beloit, Wisconsin.
Brice was nominated by Oscar Barolsky with this letter below:
I nominate Mr. G because he is very understanding of things. When I have a problem he does everything he can to solve the problem. He is a great math and English teacher, and when I need help in school he helps me. He tries to make class more fun by telling us stories where it could help the subject we are working on. He likes to make jokes about things. He teaches us interesting things. For example, I love long division and he taught us certain strategies that helped. I have been in his class for 2 years now, 4th and 5th grades. Overall he makes class super-duper fun, and that’s why I think he should be teacher of the week.
Nice work Mr. G. He doesn't just love math, it's long division Oscar loves, And that's no easy task. Maybe it's these donuts below that get them to love long division.
As Teacher of the Week, Brice was surprised with a cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes and money to spend at WM Day Spa.
