Student Nomination Story

My son has always loved science and has talked about pursuing a degree in Science for since he was in preschool. It is amazing to me that he has been so blessed with educators, like Ms. Lisa Paniagua, who continue to inspire and motivate his love of science. This recent school closure has shifted the way my son does his work, and as I listen to him during his online meetings, I listen to his giggle and love for his teacher, who is doing her absolute best to build relationships online. This is not an easy time to be a teacher, especially one, who loves to be in class and sharing the joys of science, but Ms. Paniagua is doing her very best and we are so happy that she is a part of our son's educational journey.
