Teacher Tuesday

Teacher Tuesday: November 14, 2017

What’s not to love about a teacher who likes to have fun in the classroom with her students? Every year on Halloween day, Ellen Kosh, this week’s #TeacherTuesday, decorates the room and reads “The Raven” to her students who, of course, love this annual event.

This Language Arts teacher at Wissahickon Middle School in Wissahickon School District notes, “I love reading and the theater and let my kids know that with the passion that I show them. I am not afraid to dress in a silly costume or break out in song if it means a student will want to read something I suggest or investigate an author.”

Her tastes in reading are eclectic so “I like to share everything from Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” to Kwame Alexander’s newest spoken word poetry book Solo.

“I hope that bringing ‘The Raven’ to life encourages them to read more Poe or try a new author another student recommends.”

Ellen even manages to make grammar fun as she says, “I give the same enthusiasm to grammar as I do to reading. I often teach them songs to remember helping verbs or rules of punctuation. I want kids to enjoy learning and realize how far they can go with it.”
