Thank Your Teachers Today
This past week, many of our families recognized our amazing Willard teachers. Eighth grade scholar Avery Speier shared that Mr. Mirabella is continually finding ways for his students to learn the complex math material. His cheerful disposition and ready-to-tackle the day attitude makes for an inviting learning environment! Seventh grader Chase Burnett highlighted Ms. Gworek for her continual positive attitude and desire to help others. She has made such an impact on Chase's overall performance—Wow! Wildcat Nicole Almeida recognized Mr. Bishop for his ability to shed light on historical events that remain relevant today. She shares that, "He has been an amazing teacher and has made me love history even more!" To keep this thankful spirit going, please consider completing our Willard Teacher Shout Out Form. It means so much to us!
