Congratulations to our Teacher of the Month for August, Amanda Moorman. Ms. Moorman teaches English at Maury Middle School and is the cheerleading coach.
Ms. Moorman was selected from an entry submitted by the mother of one of Ms. Moorman's students, who wrote:
Amanda exemplifies tremendous patience, compassion and true concern for her students. She is also the cheerleading coach at Maury Middle. She tries each and every day to not only teach these children about English, but she goes the extra mile and tries to teach them about life experiences. She is there for moral support when they are having a rough day and she is there to congratulate them when things go great! She encourages her students to always strive to do their best and to never use the words "I can't." She also encourages them to try new things and not to sell themselves short or to let fear get the best of them. She works really hard at preparing the eighth grade students for their venture into high school.
Amanda helped my daughter make it through the ups and downs of the eighth grade and took time to be her friend. She has become a mentor for my daughter and I feel Amanda is a TERRIFIC role model for the students.
I can't say enough about Amanda Moorman and I feel she deserves Teacher of the Month every month.
