Identified as the “best teacher for 2018” by the parent of a former student, Marcella Reppenhagen “goes above and beyond in the classroom to make sure each child is not left out. This fifth-grade educator, who teaches all subjects but has a passion for science, inspires her students at Russell C. Struble Elementary School in Bensalem Township School District and is this week’s #TeacherTuesday.
Marcella “leads the safety program at the school and is always willing to lend a helping hand after hours,” says the parent. Noting that she is a “very caring individual,” the mom adds, “It always amazes me that she does so much with and for the students and then goes home to a family.”
From her perspective, Marcella says, “I love what I get to do each day in educating young minds to not only advance academically each year, but to be better citizens in their community and the world around them.” What’s more, “The creative ideas they develop and their curiosity inspire me to make learning fun, think outside of the box, and challenge me to be better. My students make a lasting impact on my life and are my source of inspiration!”
Let us know who else is kindling that spark of imagination in their students and we’ll feature them in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday.
