To Whom It May Concern:

It is with great pleasure that I nominate Ms. Caryn Hellman as Lions Teacher of the Month as David E Norman Elementary (DEN).  

Ms. Hellman came to DEN last year as a first year teacher in the public school system.  She previously taught at the preschool level. Her knowledge of young student development has been a blessing to our young students of White Pine County.  

Ms. Hellman eagerly began her teaching assignment for us. Even with her quiet personality and soft speech, she was not afraid to collaborate with her team.  She contributes valuable and important insights into the professional development discussions and the collaborative team model of school improvement.

Ms. Hellman also worked immediately to establish a well-managed classroom. Her routines and procedures are consistent.  Students and parents know they will learn at high levels with Ms. Hellman as the teacher.

Teaching kindergarten is a unique challenge.  It takes someone with the patience and loving character of an angel.  Ms. Hellman has such a demeanor. I am grateful that she has chosen to spread her wings at DEN.  Her students and DEN as a whole are blessed to have her on staff!
