We met the charming young woman, Judy Adams, who nominated her teacher, Marianne Wilson (and hoped for a Special Mention of teacher's aide, Nancy Waddell! --Happy to mention her!!).
Judy attends New Paltz High School and had some really wonderful comments and praise for her teacher, Ms. Wilson. It was a happy occasion for all involved, including Judy's mom, Kimberly Adams, as well as school staff and other special guests. Pictured above with Judy in the center is Ms. Wilson next to Michelle and Ms. Waddell next to me.
Besides the Award, Marianne and Nancy received a number of special gifts, and thanks to TEG Federal Credit Union, Judy's teacher received a $100 gift card to use for something the whole class will enjoy.
I had a little time to chat with Judy after the presentation and plan to give you a few more details about this remarkable young woman in an upcoming blog.
It's not too late to nominate your teacher for the Teacher of the Month Award. Nominations are accepted online--details can be found here.
