Student Nomination Story

Mrs. Martinez has a passion for teaching unlike any other teacher I have ever met! That's saying a lot because, I too, am a middle school teacher. She makes herself available to her students and their parents at any time. She wants the best for her students and it shows! My daughter just had a crisis (she forgot to attend a Zoom meeting) and was about to miss the deadline to turn in an assignment. I called Mrs. Martinez and she quickly provided a solution to the problem. It is obvious that Mrs. Martinez expects the best out of her students and will inspire them to great achievement. As a parent, it is a blessing to have a teacher who will go the extra mile to ensure her students are successful. She holds additional class sessions outside of the normal school day to provide students with assistance. I often wonder if she ever goes to sleep? However, her inspiration does not stop with the students. As I mentioned, I am not only a parent but also a middle school English teacher. Mrs. Martinez has inspired me to be a better teacher. Because of her example, I am more open to providing my students with additional assistance after hours.

I choose to nominate my teacher, Mrs. Martinez because she frequently goes above and beyond for my class. Mrs. Martinez knows exactly how to motivate us and get us to do work. Every time we excel in her class we earn WOW tickets. If we have enough we get to take a trip to NYC. My favorite thing about her class is that its fair. All of my classmates have equal opportunities for success. She also makes herself available at all hours even after school is over. Like last night, for example, I had a huge problem with a major assignment. However, when my mom called her, she quickly addressed the issues and now I am ready to finish the assignment today. In conclusion, I feel I have made the right choice to nominate Mrs. Martinez.
