Congratulations to Danielle Hinkel of West Liberty Elementary School in West Liberty, Iowa. She is our first Teacher of the Week recipient of the new school season.

Danielle was nominated by Fran Gutierrez, who had this to say about her Top Teacher:

Ms. Hinkel is an amazing educator. She is not only a great teacher, but she is a caring one as well. She has always shown concern for her students and has provided them with the learning tools and methods that work for them. I personally can say she has done amazing things for both of my children. They both were blesses to have her at some point as their teacher and she truly focused on what they were struggling with. She opened their minds up and made learning a fun an great experience for them both. She gave my boys the boost of confidence they needed. She is truly on of a kind.

We are honored to recognize Danielle as this week's Top Teacher.  Danielle receives a $25 Gift Card to Half Price Books and a delicious pie from Kathy's Pies. Thank you Danielle for the positive impact you are making on each and every one of your students!
