Teacher: Toni Gasbarrino, Basic Academy
Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile? This teacher makes me smile because of how helpful she is, not just in class in everything. She makes sure I understand everything in class and in life. She makes me smile by being there and making me laugh when I am having a bad day in school. She makes me smile because she is just an all-around amazing teacher and person!
She is super sweet; any student can get along with her. Anytime I’ve gone through depression her class was all I looked forward to. I’ve had Miss G for 3 years, I am a senior this year and the only year I didn’t have her was sophomore year but I had the class right next to hers, so I’d always stop by to say hello or if I have any questions I come to her, just like everyone else. Everyone loves her being around and when I heard the news that she was moving to brown middle school I almost cried honestly. She cares so much about all of her students, and she gets to know them very well. She motivates everyone to do their work and even when you have those students who never to their work, they still feel a connection with the teacher that helps them get the questions they have answered or anything they need done. She’s like the mom of the school and when she goes, I will miss her very much. I plan on doing a surprise, so she has something in memory of her favorite class ever.
My teacher makes me smile just by being herself. She is like a second mom. My teacher is amazing in her own way and the way she isn’t like other teachers. She acts like a mom to everyone, and she isn’t serious all the time. Her personality is great because not only does she act like a mom to not only me but everyone, I have a lot of love for her, and I’m blessed I got to spend all 4 years of high-school with her.

Why Does This Teacher Make You Smile? He just makes everything fun to learn and is all around really funny, he is also just there if you need someone to talk to and is really understand of people. Having him as a teach was really fun and also really sad because i was only about to have his class for a semester, but the time i was able to have him as my teacher was just great. Even though he is no longer a class I have we still talk and have good laughs, he is basically like a really cool uncle at school (that is the best way I could describe him). That why I like him as a teacher and also why he makes me smile.

I think it’s the first time anyone’s had high exceptions for me. they think that I’m bad at something because I’m disabled in some way. but he treats me the same as the others nothing different at all. so, I think that it is nice that he doesn’t treat me any different at all. all together he’s nice and very lean on things so I think he deserves it.
I make myself smile every day I get to come into a classroom and work with kids. I chose to come work in one of the hardest schools in one of the highest needs areas of Las Vegas. Currently I teach out of a portable with 40+ kids in most of my classes and make sure that on top of my 200+ students I come in everyday at 6am to tutor before school. I then stay until at least 3:30 to tutor kids after school. I then come in on Saturdays to help kids earn enough credits to go to high school. These kids are funny, smart, and have unlimited potential and working with them makes me smile every day.
Lloyd always makes me smile with his energy, jokes, and commitment to the students. I’ve seen him eat bugs, shave his head, get hit with eggs, paint his toenails, and take a pie to the face. He will do anything for a laugh, but more importantly to get his students to learn and grow as humans. He truly is committed to making better humans in his classes and school. Last year he helped deliver over 3000 school meals, set up over 100 WIFI hotspots, and furnish 5 apartments. He was even features on the Tamron Hall Show for his work. His kids are always smiling and run into his class faster than they run out of it. He makes me smile by always checking on me and I know he is always available as a resource for anything and everything I could possibly need.
Lloyd Goldberg is the best teacher I have ever seen in a classroom. He is willing to do anything to help his students or other teachers. He is the guy who will let kids shave his head, or eat bugs, or throw water balloons at him just to get them to read more. This year he collected over $5000 worth of donations just to turn around and give them to his students for incentives to do better. He is the teacher who never yells, always jokes, and the kids know that every Friday he will be at the school with a smile, a special horrible dad joke, and a Hawaiian shirt. Lloyd comes to school early to do before school tutoring. He stays late to do after-school tutoring. He come in on Saturdays to do credit retrieval and work with kids to paint over graffiti in the neighborhood. Every single day Lloyd covers for teachers who are absent that don’t have a substitute. This would be so amazing for him to win because he has been a 5-time finalist for the Heart of Education Award, and never won. His hard work and dedication to the students should be recognized.
Lloyd is a funny guy and lets me make fun of him and doesn’t get mad all the time. We always make jokes, but he makes sure I get all of my work done. He makes sure to buy me books whenever he can. That makes me smile.
Lloyd is the funniest teacher I have met at Cashman. He always has a smile on his face even when he is covering other classes or working in the dean’s office. He is always laughing even when he is breaking up fights to telling kids to stop cursing or being racist. He is able to see the bright side of everyday even when teaching about the Holocaust or dealing with kids drawing swastikas on the walls. It is so clear that he truly loves coming to school every day and is always checking up on teachers to see if they are ok and asking what he can do to help them out. It seems like he never sleeps because he comes in at 6am for before school tutoring and then stays late for after school tutoring. He comes in on Saturdays to help kids with credit retrieval or cleaning up the campus and painting over graffiti. When I am having a hard time with work or my home life, Lloyd always sends me a text or comes to my room just to let me talk and vent. No one can be in a bad mood around him, and he always makes me smile whenever I get to teach with him. Please recognize him for everything he does at Cashman Middle School. We need more teachers like Lloyd in places like this.

I feel bad that I don’t wake up in time to get to his class most days, but he comes to find me in lunch to see if I am ok. He even texts my mom to make sure I am not sick. He is my favorite teacher even though I barely go to his class.
Mr. Goldberg is a really good teacher. He showed us our MAP data and we set goals on how to improve. He is the first teacher to ever do that with me.
