6 Storm Team Chief Meteorologist Matt Hinkin congratulates Ms. Hughes for her Teacher of the Month honor.
Congratulations to Ms. Whitney Hughes, our Teacher of the Month for January.
Ms. Hughes teaches fourth grade at Sterchi Elementary.
She was selected from an entry submitted by a parent:
She gives them an assignment every week, they are required to deliver each assignment in a different way every time. Teaching them to think outside the box. They also learn from the creative ways their classmates deliver their projects. My son comes home every week excited about the things he learned from his classmates projects. She is giving them tools they will use later on in life. Leadership, creativity, thoughtfulness, compassion, responsibility and accountability. She is teaching them to respect the people and world around them.
She gives assignments that makes them step back and think of those less fortunate than themselves. whether it be economical, or medical, or social.
She teaches them to be proactive about the environment. Teaches them many ways they can make a difference to the world around them today.
She makes each of them feel important and special. She encourages them to better themselves, with grades, friends, school ,family and community involvement.
It is refreshing to find a teacher who brings such wonderful qualities to our children, and to find a teacher who feels so strongly about so many things. The best part is she feels strongest about my child's education.
