Congratulations to our June Teacher of the Month, Cortney Ryan of John Clark Elementary School in Rockville!

Ms. Ryan was nominated by a current student and his parents:

Ms. Ryan is an absolute blessing!! She is the most kind and patient teacher. She takes her time with the students who need it to make sure they can be successful. She believes in her students, and is encouraging to them all. She also finds a way to add fun into each and every day.

From the parent: Having Ms. Ryan as my son's teacher this year has been a game changer!  She works with him, and helps him understand things at his pace. He brought home his highest scoring math test EVER, this week. He comes home happy, and is excited to go to school. She also teaches responsibility and independence, which have helped my son all-around. I could never express my gratitude for how amazing of a teacher she is. Please choose her!!

If you know a teacher who is going above and beyond the call of duty, nominate them HERE for Teacher Of The Month. It could be your former teacher, your child's current teacher, your next-door neighbor who teaches... ANY teacher in your life that you think is deserving.

It takes just a couple of sentences to nominate someone, and it could result in us showing up to their classroom unannounced to give them the surprise of a lifetime!
