The CARE Committee January Teacher of the Month Is…

Congratulations to Ms. London Blake for being selected as our January CARE Committee “Teacher of the Month!”  The CARE Committee knows that teachers are the heart and soul of every school, and takes great pride in recognizing our incredible teachers here at the Frazer Center, through the voices of the parents.

Here are some of the things the parents said about Ms. London:

“Ms. London is a gem. My daughter adores her and has from day 1 in the Jungle room. She talks to the kids like they are PEOPLE, and knows how smart they are! She seems to genuinely enjoy engaging with them.”

“One day I was about 10 minutes late to pick my daughter up at school (bad traffic), and when I burst in, very stressed, there was Ms. London, sitting on the couch with my girl, the two of them reading a book together and Ms. London with a smile on her face (even though I’d kept her past 6 p.m.). Means a lot to me every day to know our kids get to spend fun time with Ms. London!”

“Ms. London has a special gift when dealing with the children. She’s able to be attentive to every question, comment, suggestion, laughter, or even a cry. Ms. London exemplifies the characteristics that I look for in a teacher: calm, nurturing, and most of all patient.”

“When they were short a teacher in the Jungle class, Ms. London stepped up to the plate and became the kids’ superhero. She never complained and always greeted each parent with a smile. Thank you, Ms. London, you rock!”

“Ms. London has a heart of gold. Her genuine smile and positive attitude show just how much she loves her students and her job.”

“Ms. London goes above and beyond to plan fun activities for the class, and she goes out of her way to get to know her students so that she can really engage them in the lessons. We love her!”

“Ms. London has been so great with my daughter! She is always interacting with the kids and engaged. My daughter rushes to hug Ms. London immediately and always hates to say goodbye. She even wants to invite London over for dinner because ‘Ms. London is my best friend’ :)”

Congrats again, Ms. London! And if you see her around the center, be sure to wish her “Congratulations!” Ms. London, we hope you enjoy your $25 gift certificate, and we all look forward to seeing you in the hallways in your brand new, bright yellow “Teacher of the Month Winner” t-shirt!
