97 ZOK Teacher of the Week

Seventh Grade Social Studies teacher Kate Messer was nominated for 97 ZOK Teacher of the Week.  Attached is the letter and picture.  She was nominated by 7th grade student Alaina Haas, who wrote a very nice letter (copied below).
Mrs. Messer is one of my favorite teachers in [sic] have ever had. She teachers 7th grade Social Studies. Her teaching method is so amazing and fun. Instead of telling us what happened on whatever date, we have to figure out why it happened. It gives us a better understanding of the events.
Also, for the end of our unit, we take an assessment. This not a multiple choice or fill in the blank. We have to make something that proves to her how much we know. She is always more than willing to help anybody that wants to raise their grade and try hard to do so.
we all have such a special connection to Mrs. Messer. My best friend wand I like to go in her room in the morning sometimes, and talk about Hamilton. Before class, everybody jokes around with Mrs. Messer and she jokes back. It is such a joy to be in her class and she is an amazing teacher. She deserves to be Teacher of the Week.
