Here is the nomination comment: Mrs. Loskarn at Westminster Elementary is a fantastic teacher. She allows me to be a creative storyteller. Because of this, I love writing! She is always excited to see me and makes me feel like I can do anything I imagine. I love being in her class! --submitted by Colin Tiffany
Cupcakes will be delivered to Westminster Elementary School on Monday.
Teacher Appreciation Week is a week-long celebration in the United States observed the first full week in May. Patch wants to honor our local teachers and we can only do that if the community shares its stories about the great teachers we have and why we appreciate them.
Take some time this week and ask your children to talk about teachers they really appreciate. Then share with us on Patch.
It's easy, just tell us the name of the teacher, the school, the nominating student's name and details about why the teacher deserves to be honored. The "I Appreciate My Teacher Because..." comments must be entered by 9 a.m. Friday, May 11. (See the example in the comments below)
On Friday, May 11 at 3 p.m. Patch will announce the winner of the contest.
The winning teacher and the student who wrote about that teacher will each receive a half dozen gourmet cupcakes from Starry Night Bakery. But the real reward for the teachers will be seeing their dedication and work acknowledged right here on Patch.
So get to it! It's time to show off your teachers. Write about as many teachers as you want.
