The May Teacher of the Month winner is Paige Miller, a teacher at Smoky Row Elementary. Student Nolan Latterell nominated her. As a reward, Nolan won a pizza party for his class, and Miller won a $50 gift card for Market District, Teacher of the Month sponsor.
Here is Nolan’s winning essay:
I have Mrs. Miller as my teacher, and she is the best of the best when it comes to teaching. She’s been teaching for about 30 years now and has loads of experience. This is only her 2nd year at Smoky Row and I’ve been her student for both years, but it feels like I’ve known her forever. I appreciate everything she does for my class. She’s always praising our work and never loses her temper. She makes school enjoyable every day and wipes away my worries and stress. She undoubtedly qualifies as the best teacher a student could ask for.
