Week of October 26
Mrs. Rebecca Morris, 4th-grade Teacher at the Johnsburg Central School in North Creek
Mrs. Morris has gone above and beyond during this time of remote learning. She takes extra time to check in with each student to meet their individual needs and provides a welcome and fun atmosphere for the students to learn. Mrs. Morris spends a lot of her personal time thinking of new and unique ways to connect the students during this unusual time and make sure they have their best school year yet. Thank you to Mrs. Rebecca Morris at the Johnsburg Central School for all of her efforts!
Week of October 19
Miss Amber Bement formerly of the Fort Edward Union Free School District
Miss Bement taught 9th and 10th grade English last school year and did an outstanding job with her students throughout the year. When the pandemic hit and virtual learning became a reality, Miss Bement stepped up to help her students via google meet. She provided extra help to assist students to maintain their averages and extended due date deadlines for schoolwork. Thanks to Miss Amber Bement formerly of the Fort Edward Union Free School District.
Week of October 12
Mr. Joel Gordon, Special Education Teacher at the Queensbury Middle School
Mr. Gordon has been a life-saver during the virtual learning from last school year into this year. He meets with students every day for as long as they need his support. When school is in session normally, he is always available for help and he checks in on the students to see how they are doing outside of school. Mr. Gordon knows how to make learning fun to keep his students engaged in their schoolwork. Thanks to Mr. Joel Gordon at the Queensbury Middle School for all that he does!
Week of October 5
Mrs. Alesa Wilson, Reading Teacher at the Greenwich Junior-Senior High School
Mrs. Wilson makes learning fun and meaningful for her students. Her commitment to her students became even more apparent when learning went remote. She adapted quickly and began work with her students one on one, many of whom did not have reliable internet access…so Mrs. Wilson spent a lot of time teacher over the phone. She wants her students to do their best and genuinely cares about them. Thanks for all you do…Mrs. Alesa Wilson at the Greenwich Junior-Senior High School!
Week of September 28
Ms. Jessica Curtin, Teacher at the Sunshine Nursery School in Cambridge
Ms. Curtin has a special way of working with young kids. She makes them feel comfortable and is so caring. Ms. Curtin does a great job in taking new students under her wing and make the transition into a new learning environment so easy. Ms. Jessica Curtin is a true rock star at the Sunshine Nursery School in Cambridge. Congratulations on being Teacher of the Week!
