Students voted last week for ‘staff pick of the month’ and chose Earth Science teacher Nick Vlietstra.
They were given access to a Google Form with all staff members’ names. Students voted for who they wanted and left comments at the bottom explaining their selection.
As a prize, he was given a crown and a bag of goodies but says the remarks from students were the best part.
Vlietstra said students left comments about how they like the atmosphere in his classroom because it’s a relaxed feel making learning better.
“I’m honored that I was considered,” Vlietstra said. “There are so many teachers at this school that would be deserving of anything like this, so to be in that conversation is flattering.”
