Teacher Tuesday: November 22, 2017
This week’s #TeacherTuesday was identified as “an outstanding colleague” by the educator who nominated her. Ginny Wilcher is a third-grade teacher at Gwyn Nor Elementary School in the North Penn School District, and you can see by the smiles on their faces that her students agree too!
Says Ginny, “Knowing my students feel valued, purposeful, and have a sense of belonging is important to me. I am fortunate enough to provide opportunities that will shape their future and celebrate their small victories because I can watch them grow as a person or a learner.” She adds, “At the same time, I feel appreciated every time they enter the classroom, whether I get a smile, a card, a hug, a hello, or a thank you. These small gestures and knowing my students are succeeding is what inspires me to teach everyday because I know I made a difference in their lives.”
