As you can tell from this picture, everyone had a wonderful time when Michelle and I visited Traver Road Primary School in Pleasant Valley on Friday to present the February Teacher of the Month Award to Ms. Caitlin Barry, who was nominated by two of her students, JulieAnna and Sienna.
Here is what the nomination letter said: "Ms. Barry is kind, caring, fun and exciting. She teaches us about amazing things that we did not know before Ms. Barry talked about it. We love her. She is the best teacher EVER!!!"
Well put, don't you think?
JulieAnna and Sienna are already wearing the backpacks they received, filled with goodies, and their teacher, Ms. Barry, laughing (we could see why the kids love her), is holding her Teacher of the Month plaque. In addition she received movie tickets, a gift certificate for Cosimo's in Poughkeepsie, Broadway tickets, and a $100 gift card from TEG Credit Union to use for something nice for the whole class.
To add to the festivities, Friday happened to also be Pajama Day, and everyone, even Prinicpal Mrs. Conrad was decked out in their finest bedtime attire. If Michelle and I had known . . .
