This is Colleen Buck, also known as Mrs. Book to the kindergarteners she teaches as the librarian at Oak Ridge Elementary School in the Souderton Area School District. Not only is she this week’s #TeacherTuesday, but her sunny personality and passion for “helping every child feel appreciated, understood and truly valued as an individual” has earned her a TV spot on FOX 29Good Day Philadelphia today.
Says Colleen, “Each morning I wake up excited to empower our learners to investigate, innovate, and celebrate. Being a public school educator affords me the opportunity to enrich the lives of children from a variety of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds; who in turn enrich my life tenfold!”
She adds, “I just absolutely positively love what I do!” That’s clear because Colleen knows the name of every one of the more than 500 students in the school, and you can tell they love her too.
Tell us who else is a shining spotlight in your school and we’ll feature them in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday.
