For being our Teacher Salute winner for the month of May... Miss Towers will receive a Class Pizza Party from Little Caesars Pizza, delieved by Mike and Steph and lots of great prizes!
This is what Wanda and Rachael had to say about Miss Towers:
Wanda Said: I am nominating my daughter’s 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Towers; Mrs. Towers is a compassionate individual which is reflected in her teaching; she understands that each student has a unique learning style and adjusts her teaching style to ensure each student is achieving at their academic level. At the start of the school year, Mrs. Towers establishes a parent-teacher relationship to ensure the student is achieving at their academic level. In this third grade class there is a student that needs extra guidance to stay focus on his academics and at times he is disruptive to the other students learning. Mrs. Towers is understanding and patient with this student, as well as to ensure all the other students’ academics are not disrupted. She does an amazing job with balancing this classroom.
Rachael Said: Mrs. Towers makes learning a fun experience. I enjoy being part of Mrs. Tower’s class. This is why we are nominating Mrs. Towers; Being a teacher is a hard enough job, but she makes it look so easy. She deserves to win the B104 Teacher Salute!!!! Thank you very much for reading about my favorite teacher!!
THANK YOU MISS TOWERS FOR BEING A GREAT TEACHER!

"Mrs. Caton just celebrated her 25 years for teaching kindergarten at St. Ann! My son Antonio is currently a student in her class. He & his peers just adore her! She goes above and beyond her job requirements. She is the most kind & caring person. She looks after the best interest of every student. As a parent, I am so proud of my son, he has learned to read & write in kindergarten! One of our favorite things that Mrs. Caton does for her class is she has the students send 100 postcards from family & friends directly to the school. They mark them on a Map, then put the postcards up on a wall. The goal is to get 100 postcards for the 100th day of school! For the last 25 years she has been doing this & they always reach their goal!! This year they received over 300!! What a great way to teach children about geography! She's the best!!"

"I am nominating Mrs Hopper for the B104 Teacher Salute because she is a very kindhearted and loving person. Everyone who has had her as a teacher can agree that she is very helpful and when we do not understand something we can go to her and she will stay after school and work with us or help us during lunch. Mrs. Hopper makes learning fun and interesting because she plays games, gives us strange dances, gives us phrases to remember and shows us video clips. As the 8th grade is preparing for confirmation, Mrs. Hopper helps us to remember them and makes it fun at the same time. Mrs. Hopper is an amazing teacher and I think she deserves to be the teacher of the month!"

Lucas is now going in to third grade and says how much he will miss Mrs. Emmon's hugs. When Mrs Emmons was at one of his baseball games, Lucas made sure he came to give her a hug!"
