Teacher Appreciation Week is celebrated during the first full week in May, with Teacher Appreciation Day falling on Tuesday, May 8, 2007. In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, Reading Rockets asked the online community to write in and tell them about the teachers who make a difference in their lives.
I nominated Jessica Fiedler, a teacher from my daughter, Aanyah’s preschool for that award. I was informed today that she was chosen to be the award recipient. Jessica is one of those rare individuals who has the unique talent to spark young preschoolers’ imaginations and help them develop creative thinking. She makes every child feel special and empowered. She helps children think of how best to resolve disputes amongst themselves and it amazes the young ones when they are able to come up with a solution. She has an amazing drive and a deep-rooted ethical sense.
Reading Rockets is an award winning site that offers effective teaching strategies and promotes reading comprehension, language arts, literacy, fluency, phonics and phonemic awareness in children.
