I would like to recognize: Ms. England
For (shout out/comment): I want to give a special Shout-Out to my son’s World History teacher, Ms. England. Having a new 6th grader entering a whole new experience this year we met Ms. England on parent/teacher night. We spoke about the curriculum in detail. After sharing my experiences as a First Responder from the September 11th attacks in NYC, Ms. England requested me to share my experience to her 6th grader World History classes. Ms. England coordinated the entire event. Even made sure the Theater staff was on hand to assist if there were technical difficulties. Ms. England felt this presentation was not just important to her classes but to the entire 6th grade student body. The presentation was a success and I received positive feedback from educators and students. I feel Ms. England went above and beyond to assure her students received the highest level of education which will remain with them forever. My son loves her class. It’s educators like Ms. England who have hard work and dedication that made my son’s transition to middle school an unforgettable experience. Thank you for being there for my son and all those other students who she’s impacted. Great Job!
