I would like to nominate Mrs. Tucci from Fort LeBoeuf High School for JET-TV's Golden Apple Award.
Mrs. Tucci is my special education teacher. She makes me feel important and successful at school. She does things to help me learn in a different way if I don't understand. She always takes a personal interest in my success and builds my confidence. I have come to realize that she is a very kind, caring and passionate person that loves her job!
I have autism, which can make her job a challenge, but she never shows that her job can be challenging. In class I can ask her 20 questions and she is always there to answer my questions. She always has a smile on her face and encourages me to do my very best no matter how hard it is for me. School has always been hard for me but because of Mrs. Tucci I love school because she never lets me give up. These qualities are the best to have in a teacher and I strongly believe that Mrs. Tucci is the best teacher ever! She loves being a teacher knowing that she gives me the education that I need and tools to help me for the rest of my life.
She (Mrs. Tucci) has a great personality and she is very well liked at my school. She makes me look forward to going to school everyday with her kindness and lovingness, and her laugh makes me smile. She is a wonderful teacher and I believe she deserves this award because she works hard and doesn't expect any recognition. Mrs. Tucci is a shining example of everything that a teacher should be!
