Student Nomination Story

I had Ms. Peterkin in both 6th grade and 7th grade, and in 6th grade she taught reading, in 7th grade she taught social studies. In those times she didn't just teach me reading, or social studies, she taught me about life and how to be respectful amongst my peers and elders. She taught me how to express myself through art, and words. Her classes were always interactive and creative. Ms. Peterkin made sure that before I left that classroom I was ready for high school, college, and beyond. Being, of course, I am a little disappointed that she isn't my teacher now in 8th grade but I know deep down that another student is receiving the joy and wonder to have a teacher like Ms. Peterkin. Kind regards, Victoria Alapa
