Morocco Super Hero of the Month

Mrs. Clark is our Hero of the Month! Mrs. Clark teaches first grade at Morocco! She also coaches Math and Spell Bowl. Mrs. Clark was nominated by both current and former first grade students. These are some of the things they had to say about Mrs. Clark:

"She made me smart. She is cool and makes learning fun. She is nice and kind and not mean at all. She keeps us safe. She taught me how to read. She taught me everything I need to learn for 2nd grade! Mrs. Clark is the best first grade teacher I ever had!" Congratulations to Mrs. Clark for being a hero to your students past and present!
