Middle school can be a tough transition for students, going from elementary school to getting ready for high school. That’s why it’s nice to have a teacher that knows exactly what her students are dealing with.
There is nothing like seeing the enthusiasm on the faces of children ready to learn, especially the younger ones. This week’s WTOC Top Teacher, keeps her students focused on learning but also having fun.
WTOC honors a Top Teacher every Wednesday. These are the teachers nominated by students and parents for making a difference in the classroom. We honored over 40 teachers this year. And as we celebrate the end of the school, we invited all of our top teachers together for a celebration luncheon.
