Teacher Tributes

Mrs .Pennington.


This teacher Mrs. Pennington is one of the best because I always used to get in trouble. She always pushed me to the limit every single time at wanting me to better myself and to do better in school. When she teaches, she always gives us so many experiences in different ways just so she can try to help us go to fourth grade.

Dawn Greene

O.P. Earle Elementary

Ms. Greene teaches a self contained special needs class at O.P. Earle Elementary School. She teaches my 3rd grade daughter who was diagnosed with autism when she was 3 years old. My child was considered non verbal and she was unable to consistently demonstrate what she knows until she became a part of Ms. Greene’s classroom two years ago. When she arrived to Ms. Greene’s class, she was embraced and encouraged to do her very best. Because of the LOVE that Ms. Greene has shown my daughter, my daughter is able to read now and she is able communicate with all of us and she continues to get better every single day! Ms. Greene’s commitment and high expectations of her children, rescues them from a world of frustration and confusion. She meets them where they are and pushing them to reach their greatest potential. Ms. Greene’s students are not able to tell her thank you or organize any type of recognition for her. Therefore, I felt compelled as a grateful parent, to nominate Ms. Greene for this honor! She deserves this and so much more. Ms. Greene is a true TEACHER HERO!

Mrs. LynnPennington

Chandler Creek

Mrs.Pennington is a member of DLC. She has taught me a lot of new things this year using technology. For example, when to capitalize letters, and many strategies to help me read English better. We also did a project on solids and liquids and many others. We also did centers and I learned that there are many different kinds of quadrilaterals. I really have learned to read English much better because of the way Mrs. P taught me. She is a great teacher and will help me when I don’t understand. She is my hero teacher.
