Thompson School District is proud to celebrate 2016 National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2-6. All this week, we are featuring photos and inspirational words submitted by students and families throughout the district.
Teachers: Jody Brinkman, Sandra Bonawitz & Janelle Saya
School: Ponderosa Elementary School
Our daughter Evie had Mrs. Brinkman in 1st grade. I was invited to do some geology related activities for all of the 1st graders and was blown away at how passionate and fun Mrs. Brinkman, Mrs. Bonowitz, and Mrs. Saya were about science!! The kids in their classes learn so many cool things about geology and come prepared with so many questions and rocks of their own on the days I visit. Even though Evie is in 2nd grade, I still go in to do rock related activities because they make learning so enjoyable! This year they held a rock night at the school and students were able to show off their geology projects, wore field geologist clothes, and we got to show off our rock collections. These 3 teachers always have a smile on their faces and their energy is contagious. They are my favorite “firsties!!”
