Fun Learning in First Grade with…

The April Educator of the Month Winner Christina Duff...

Rick Presented Christina Duff with a plaque, a great big check to display, and $500 to help defray miscellaneous costs for the classroom.

Jenica V. shared her experiences with our winner in her nomination...

I asked each of my two sons to tell me which of their teachers would be deserving of being nominated as teacher of the month. Without hesitation, my son Nolan answered, "Ms. Austin!"  who is now Ms. Duff.

Mrs. Duff goes above and beyond to make sure that her students are learning and enjoying first grade every single day. She incorporates the necessary first grade standards in a way that creates a fun learning environment for her students. 

Mrs. Duff not only taught many interesting things during his first grade year, but also helped my (somewhat shy) son in connecting him with friends in his classroom that remain good friends still two years later. She cares about kids in a way that it is no wonder that so many first graders love her so much! 

My son says, "Ms. Austin (now Mrs. Duff) is the best teacher because she is very nice and cares about kids. We got to do cool science and learn about river otters. I really liked writing workshop." 

I highly recommend Ms. Austin to be a recipient of this award, she is definitely deserving!
