The Westerville Education Foundation (WEF) has named three educators Teacher of the Month for November, and one of our very own teachers was one of the recipients!
Kari Tucker is described by her nominator as innovative, encouraging and supportive. She teaches fundamental lessons in the classroom outside of the regular curriculum. Her nominator describes, “She is highly skilled at creating a classroom community that fosters kindness, caring and empathy for all of her students. By careful consideration in pairing students together, she has created unlikely friendships that have continued outside of her classroom.” She identifies each child’s potential and works to help them identify their strengths and take their education to the next level. “My child has been identified as superior cognitively gifted…Our main reason for electing to keep him at Robert Frost was so that he could experience an educational environment that stimulated his unique needs while simultaneously meeting the needs of a diverse student population.” Through her attentive involvement, Mrs. Tucker has exceeded the parent’s expectation to provide a beneficial experience both educationally and socially.
