Student Nomination Story

Tesa Davis is the best teacher I've encountered in all my life and my daughter's short education career. She takes the time to learn about each student's emotional style and learning style, and applies that to them as individuals. For example, she learns if students prefer a handshake, fist-bump, hug, or nothing as a greeting on the first day, and applies that. She notices irregular behavior (like holding a book too close or nursing a boo-boo) and opens a clear and helpful line of communication with the teacher. She's inspiring as a teacher and inspiration to the students. Every parent and student I've heard talk about Tesa can only sing the highest praises.
