FAVORITE TEACHING MOMENT: I am lucky enough to have my students for at least 4 years. When you have students that long you become a family. After not being together all summer, I love seeing them on the first day of school. We are able to catch up with each other and discuss all of our goals for the new year. The first day of school is by far my favorite teaching moment that I enjoy every year!

Tasha Dommer, New Haven Intermediate

SUBJECT AREA: 3rd Grade
NUMBER OF YEARS TEACHING: 11
NUMBER OF YEARS WITH EACS: 7
FAVORITE TEACHING MOMENT: One year I had a student show up on the first day of school who wanted nothing to do with school. He didn’t like one thing about school and wanted to be anywhere but school. I saw this as a challenge. I made it my mission to change this child’s mind. He was going to LOVE school! I made connections with him and found out what he liked. I celebrated when he arrived to school and told him I would miss him on the weekend. Nothing! He still did NOT like anything about school. I was starting to lose hope and then Christmas came along. Students were bringing me gifts as they walked into class that last day before break. My friend, the one who still didn’t like anything about school, brings me a hand written note. Initially, I thought it was a note from his parents. Maybe a transportation change, but he stood there smiling at me. Smiles were few and far between for him. Curiosity won and I had to see what was on that paper. Inside was a page long, hand written note from him. To sum it up, he thanked me for being his teacher, said he was happy I was his teacher, and told me he was going to do better. That is my favorite moment.

FAVORITE TEACHING MOMENT: Each year I strive to create a sense of family within my classroom. This year we had a special education student
leave to attend a program at a different school. When I told the class he was leaving they were upset because they were going to miss him and then got up and gave him a group hug. The student hugged his friends goodbye and told them he would miss them. It warmed my heart to see the love they shared towards each other with the group hug.
