I'm not posting this to brag, I promise! But when I get these forms in my mailbox each month, they crack me up! Every month the students have to nominate a teacher they want to win Staff Member of the Month and why. I love the reasons they give cause it makes me think about what I am doing every day when I walk around the classroom. Here's what they put this month:
"I love the way she talks. She reminds me of Natasha Bedingfield."
"She is nice and gentle." (Gentle? Haha!)
"Because we do labs." (Thats all they put. Nothing else.)
"Her creative drawing." (They are mocking me because I draw stick horses on the board.)
"Ms. Bray is nice and I love science. And she's pretty too. I love her teaching skills. I want to be a teacher when I grow up because of her." (I'm giving her an A! :) )
"When we have questions she listens and answers. Even if she doesn't know the answer she will work hard to get the answer. "
"She is not afraid to have fun. She is always talking in a non-loud tone."
"She has great discipline steps. She is fun, cool, and funny. She likes to be random. I am glad I have her fourth period and I can't wait for the pizza party. Go Ms. Bray! Go Ms. Bray!"
"She always makes things clear by creating mental images."
"She always has contests for us to enter and makes classwork seem really fun. For instance she makes weird noises like "Ew!" and "Gross!" She always keeps us interested."
"I enjoy being in her class because she is so random. We talk a lot but we still get our work done even if we do get off topic. Ms. Bray is cool and I am not saying it just to get on her good side in fact I am not even kissing up to her. She's just really cool. I nominated her last time but she didn't even win which really stinked. I can't believe it. But still its cool and I hope she wins this time."
"She teaches us science very quickly. She relates to us very easily. She lets us understand science in a unique way. I've learned so much already."
"She donates time to go to the store and getting things for our class. She also gives us the inside scoop on everything and she will get anything for the class to have fun."
"I always look forward to going to science. She is a very kind and caring person who I know everyone likes to be around. Ms. Bray is the best science teacher I could ask for!"
"She even bought some class pets. Ms. Bray is always in a happy mood no matter what goes on. I'm sure she likes to teach science a lot. She is one of the best teachers at this school."
"She smiles at you with warmth in her eyes. She gives you the best answers when problems are the worst. She gives out the best prizes when you do something good. I don't know about you, but Ms. Bray is the best science teacher I've had in my life."
"She also teaches us to be mature about things. She teaches us in a way we understand."
"She is very hyper and she may run into something but she makes us laugh. She is very nice and does creative experiments. She makes hilarious jokes and loves to watch Brainpop. She runs crazily around to make our class great. Ms. Bray is the best teacher in the world!"
"She knows how to make learning fun. From making body systems out of play dough to weighing items on scales."
This is why I teach! :)
