Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile? Always there to listen to us and learning makes sense when he explains things. Very dedicated teacher and loves his students.

He just brings a really good vibe to the classroom. He takes care of grades accordingly and he actually makes learning a little fun.

He’s a great teacher and is loved and liked by so many of his students even student that aren’t in his class. -Riley R

Mr. Pedroso is makes me smile because when I'm in his classroom I know that I am safe. I know that there is no judgement in his classroom and being in there makes me happy.

So, thank you Mr. Pedroso for helping me through that time!

Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile?  He is just an amazing teacher, and he works hard every day to ensure to put a smile on everyone's faces. He is really funny and always has a fun way to do activities. This is why I think Mr. Percy should be nominated.

Mr. Percy give students a fun environment, motivating them to learn and pay attention more. Mr. Percy also make sure the class is under control and is staying on task. If students are off task, instead of pointing out which students are off task, Mr. Percy tells all the students in the class what they should be doing instead of playing games, etc.

Mr. Percy also guides the students through the assignment, though not telling us the answers he shows us how to figure it out ourselves. Mr. Percy acknowledges our achievements and encourages us to “keep up the good work”. He uses his own stories to show that it doesn’t matter where you come from, you deserve a chance to try and that you can do amazing things.
