Teacher: Mrs. Muck
School: Eagle Point Elementary School
Mrs. Muck is an excellent teacher and person in general. She takes time and really works with the kids. Last year my 4th grade daughter was accepted in the GEARS program (Gifted Education Advancing Rossford Students), very few students get accepted and she went one time and decided she didn’t want to do it. When she got to Mrs. Muck’s class, she took personal time to talk to me about getting her back in it, that she knows Mia is smart and it would benefit her. She also took time to talk to my daughter personally in class and Mia decided to go and now loves it. For her to take her personal time to see the potential in my daughter and to push her to better herself to me is absolutely wonderful. There’s not many teachers these days that care enough about their students to push them to be the best they can. To let them know that they are better and smarter then they think they are. And how special each one is. I know multiple people who have had children in Mrs. Muck’s class over the years and every one of them has absolutely loved her. She hasn’t changed one bit in the many years she has been with our school. I very much think from the short month that I have known her, she is definitely one of the best. I know my daughter as well as the children that have had her absolutely love her. She deserves this and hope you can understand how wonderful this woman is by this short letter.
Thank you – Lisa Croad
Teacher: Mr. Spalino
School: Clay High School
Class: Machine Trades
Mr. Spalino should win this award because he is one of the greatest teachers of all. My little brother is 17 and is in Mr. Spalinos machine trades class at Clay. My brother has never been one to love school or keep up good grades. He is dyslexic and has always struggled with school. He has never really enjoyed it until this year in Mr. Spalino’s class. My brother came home after the first week of school and told me all about Mr. Spalino and how awesome he is. He told me about how he moved here from Italy when he was 5 and learned to speak English. He told me how Mr. Spalino will help place him and the other students in jobs when they graduate high school. I have never seen my brother so interested in school. Now, my brother is getting good grades (A\’s and B\’s), and is studying hard for tests and quizzes. I am so happy and proud of my brother, and Mr. Spalino is the person we have to thank for that! My parents are so happy that he finally has a teacher who genuinely cares about the students and will do whatever is necessary to help them succeed. A teacher that can make him feel so comfortable going to school every day(even with a reading disability). My brother now looks forward to his future and having an awesome career! That is why Mr. Spalino should indeed be awarded Teacher of the Month.
