The April Teacher of the Month winner is Aleks Johnson, a third-grade teacher at Smoky Row Elementary. Student Sophie Reed nominated her. As a reward, Sophie won a pizza party for her class, and Johnson won a $50 gift card for Market District, Teacher of the Month sponsor.
Here is Sophie’s winning essay:
I have the best teacher in the world! Her name is Mrs. Johnson. First I had Mrs. Johnson in Kindergarten. I had a great experience with her. I was so lucky because I got Mrs. Johnson again this year for third grade. I was so excited!!!! So we are about half way into the school year. I love Mrs. Johnson because she is always willing to help, and she is always encouraging you to learn. She also helps in all different situations. Sometimes she helps at recess or if another teacher needs help with something she always says YES. This is Mrs. Johnson’s first year as a third grade teacher. So she is still getting to know what to do, but again, she is always powering through. If you are in third grade at Smoky Row I hope you have Mrs. Johnson!
