This week's MIX 95.1's Rick & Lisa Teacher of the Week is Mrs.Polly Beam of Montgomery Elementary School
Dear Rick and Lisa, From the very first day of kindergarten orientation I knew my son would have the best education he could have. Mrs. Beam introduced herself as the fun teacher who loves Hershey's kisses. I have seen first hand by volunteering how much she cares about her "little friends". She believes not only should the kindergartners have a great education, but they should have good memories that will last for a lifetime. She has gone over and above my expectations as a great mentor. It brought tears to my face to hear my son reading the very first month of school. Everyday he comes home to tell me what he learned in school and how excited he was to be in Mrs. Beams class. The "cool" thing about Mrs. Beam is the students are having fun while they are learning. She goes the extra mile to plan: Thanksgiving dinner in her class, while the students all dressed up for their meal, Pumpkin day, which she personally donated all the pumpkins for the children to decorate, the Christmas workshop and this is just a few of the "fun" things happening in her class. My son came home one day and said he wanted to be president... telling me all the great things a President can do,,, naming off the first and so forth presidents by name. Every week she elects a weather person. Everyday the children sit on the carpet space and the weather "friend" looks outside to see what the forcast is for the day. At anytime it changes.. they are responsible for telling Mrs Beam so the class is notified. The class has a cute little weather song they sing everyday.(which my son comes home singing). This is one of those songs that gets stuck in your head that repeats over and over again. lol! The students look up to her and respect her. She has patience of a saint. Mrs. Beam is amazing and a wonderful teacher. There is no doubt about it. I believe Mrs. Beam deserves the Rick and Lisa Teacher of the Week award. Without question, she is the best of the BEST!!
