Lucie Albin, Sixth Grade, Iowa Virtual Academy
Of all the teachers who have been there for me, there is one who has been there for me more than the rest. This teacher is Mrs. Zuercher.
She has been my teacher since 2nd grade, and helped me through every year. Sometimes I have trouble staying organized and turning things in on time. Mrs. Zuercher has helped me with that, whether it is reminding me about my overdue homework, or giving me a little extra time. Whenever I need help with an assignment or lesson, all I have to do is e-mail her. She e-mails me back within a few hours and either solves the problem on the spot, or plans an online help session the next day. If I am bored with a class because it is too easy, she helps me find another option that works better. Whenever I need something explained again, she goes the extra mile to make sure I understand. Mrs. Zuercher is one of the most productive, smart, helpful, and influential people I know.
I want to say thank you to Mrs. Zuercher, for helping me throughout the years, and being the most helpful teacher I know, though I’m sure it’s not easy.
