National Teaching Award Nominee
The Potomac School, Washington, DC
Student Nomination Story
Mr. McEwen's classroom was a happy, safe place. He taught us independence, and he was the best teacher ever. 3rd grade was so fun, and Mr. McEwen made it hands on and engaging. He taught me to never give up, and I really needed that, especially in school. On the weekends, I would miss school and talking to Mr. McEwen, where in years before I would want the weekend to go on forever. He made learning so fun, and now whenever I see him I give him a high five or hug.
