A note from Natalie's Teachers

Post date: Apr 22, 2015 5:22:15 PM

I nominated Natalie's teachers for PTA Educator of the year.

This was their response.

I am sobbing. All we ever wanted was for her to survive. Great grades and the pressure therein were not important to her father and I. This is more than we could have ever hoped or prayed for.

It has been our pleasure, no, our privilege, to work with your daughter! She is a remarkable, outstanding young lady. She not only makes each day here at Mary Morgan a better for us to come too; but she inspires us all to be better people. She helped remind us all that every day is a gift, and that giving is so very important. She showed others that, “we never know what people are going through, or have gone through,” and because of this we need to be sensitive to others and their feelings.

As teachers we are always looking for a way to inspire and engage (hard to do sometimes), but when someone like Natalie steps up in the way that she did – all the lesson plans in the world couldn’t compare. She is a teachers dream, and you should be very proud of her (I know you are!!!), We are so very proud of her! She truly makes a difference and positively impacts this class, school, community… world! (not even overstating that)

THANK YOU! Thank you for the nomination, but most importantly – thank you for giving us the privilege to work with Natalie every day! It is students like her, and parents like you, that are the true “award” in teaching!
