Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile? Because he is the funniest teacher caring teacher and a respectful teacher.
He makes me smile because he’s very funny and he always makes me feel better when I’m having a rough day. He constantly compliments my clothes or my hair and that makes me feel a lot better about how I look. He will forever be one of my favorite teachers. His class was always the funniest.
Teacher: Barbara Fenton, Walter Long Steam Academy
Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile? Barbara is our grade level chair this year for fifth grade. We have a team that consists of five teachers. Two of us are brand new teachers with one year or less experience, and one of us is brand new to fifth grade. We have had a wonderful year, in no small part because of Barbara’s support. She goes out of her way to make sure that school is both productive and fun. She has served our team so well and so by doing that, served the whole school including the students as well. From leading the 5th grade team to create an incredibly fun haunted house for the school fall festival to working tirelessly on a 5th grade Harry Potter themed Hallway and points system this year that kept fifth grade so motivated. Barbara has made us all smile. Let’s not forget the countless crafty goodies she puts together for our team. Her fun goodie bags kept me going throughout the testing week! Our team feels like home and Barbara has really been a great “mama bear” for the team. I think she deserves this recognition because she is the epitome of a team player.

Teacher: Danielle Flanigan, Spring Valley High School
Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile? She has always been extremely helpful and understanding teacher to us. She’s always willing to help us learn and improve our dances and the various moves we know. We’ve also built strong relationships as a whole in Company and everyone has grown pretty close. She is also willing very willing to try and understand certain things many teachers wouldn’t and accepted all of our dance styles as they are and I’m very thankful for Mrs. Flanigan and everything I’ve learned from her.
Mrs. Flanigan has always supported me ever since I was a freshman. She always encourages me to do my best and to never give up especially when I am feeling less confident in myself, she always pushes me to see the brighter side of things. Mrs. Flanigan has consistently made open efforts to get to know each of her students on personal levels and will never make us do something we are uncomfortable with doing. She’s the only teacher that I know I can depend on at this school and would even consider opening up to and being vulnerable with.
Mrs. Flanigan makes me smile because she makes the class feel like a family. Our dance company actually all refers to her as mother because she’s a person that is genuinely a role model to us. She is always so bright and positive, when I come into her classroom, I feel an immediate boost of energy. Whenever I have gone through something in my personal life she has always been there as someone I can talk to. She genuinely has helped me so much in my life, she is an inspiration.
Ms. Flanigan is such an encouraging teacher to all of her students. She understands that we are all at a different level of learning and adjusts her teaching accordingly. She has created such a supportive learning environment where I am not afraid to ask questions or make mistakes. I feel like I can be myself in her class not only to my peers, but to her as well.
Out of all of the teachers that I have encountered, she is the person that I confide in the most. When I enter her class, I feel that I can be myself no matter what. Her passion towards teaching and dancing inspires me to continue, even when I feel as if I don’t want to. She helped me to develop a stronger love for dance more than I already have. Whenever I feel confused about something, she will go out of her way to help me. There have been countless times where I have had personal issues, and I felt comfortable to talk to her about it.

Teacher: Ryan Formoltz, Las Vegas High School
Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile? Mr. Fromoltz makes us smile because he’s the kindest, most amazing and understanding teacher all of us have ever had. Mr Fromoltz taught us about family values, and the loving spirits we share with one another. We will never ever find another to show us how beautiful human nature is. By sharing food, conversation, and fun activities together, we’ve been able to connect with our peers, and share wonderful experiences, hopefully. many, many more in the future. I will cry, scream, kick, and be distraught if he is to ever leave the school district, I beg that other students may be able to experience Mr Fromoltz and all of his glory.

Teacher: Megan Franke, Las Vegas Academy of The Arts
Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile? Mrs. Franke has been the best teacher in the world. She makes me smile because of her radiant energy. It is almost impossible to be in the same room with Mrs. Franke and not feel energized. She always encourages us to do our best and to persevere through tough times. She is an integral part of this school, and I could not imagine it without her. Mrs. Franke does everything with grace and never misses the beat. She is a huge inspiration to me, and I will never ever forget her as my teacher. She makes us all one big happy choir family.
Mrs. Franke is my choir and Musical Theatre elective teacher. She is selfless and always has her student’s best interest in mind. She is insanely funny and always comes into class with a smile. She constantly stays after school to help all of the vocal majors with their projects and shows. She is kind and you know that she will always be in your corner.
This teacher makes me smile on a daily basis. She carries so much joy and happiness, not only does she teach us the things we go to the school for (Music),but every day she teaches us real life things and situations for the real world when we graduate. Always being a safe space for all her students no matter what the situation is. Mrs. Franke puts a smile on my face when she makes me, and all peers feel loved and creates such a home environment in our classroom. Mrs.Franke doesn’t do what she does to be known for it, she does it because she genuinely loves what she does and is so passionate about it. Mrs. Franke has never complained about her job or the things she has to do and something that makes me smile is the fact that everything she does really comes from the heart. Mrs. Franke deserves this award and so much more.
