Teacher of the Week at St. Mark's Episcopal Day School is Full of Enthusiasm | Schools
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- This week's Teacher of the Week is at St. Mark's Episcopal Day School.
Maria Shelor is teaching her fourth-graders about cause and effect. "I love seeing them succeed and knowing that I am empowering them for the future," Shelor said.
Her teaching style - full of enthusiasm - causes students to love learning.
"She's one of the nicest people I've ever met," said student Riley Cozart. Cozart had Shelor as a teacher twice and nominated her for Teacher of the Week.
"She was my first-grade teacher," Cozart said. "She was teaching me my ABCs, and now she's my fourth-grade teacher, and now she's teaching us how to read very properly."
Shelor enjoys seeing the kids' personalities shine.
"That is the best reward: to see a child succeed and improve their self esteem and self confidence," Shelor said.
