National Teaching Award Nominee
West Branch Area High School, Morrisdale, Pennsylvania
Student Nomination Story
Betty Fry is an exceptional teacher that I have wanted to nominate for this honor since I gradated from High School over 10 years ago. Today I am a Hollywood Director and Producer (www.SpencerFolmar.com) and as a creative, math never came easily to me. I struggled a lot to make sense of complicated algebra and calculus problems, but Betty Fry always made class fun and my least favorite subject became my favorite because of her. She even celebrated March 14 (Pi Day) and made it a school wide holiday and we had party in celebration of this day. She really made learning fun and always was there for students for personal and academic support. I am very thankful I had Betty Fry as a teacher and she continues to teach today and inspire new generations.
