TUCSON - Today on News 4 at 4, the group Tucson Values Teachers surprised another local schoolteacher with the April Teacher Excellence Award!
Check out the video above to see TVT surprise Mrs. Barbara Tingle, a kindergarten teacher at Sahuarita Primary School.
Mrs. Tingle received an impressive 10 nominations from different parents, including Shirley Mercer. Her nomination reads:
Mrs. Tingle uses a calm, consistent, and caring approach to introducing new concepts and to encourage her students to enjoy learning. She gives the children resources and allows them to work independently, in groups, and one-on-one with her. She is innovative, has a great understanding of how 5 year olds learn, and capitalizes on their abilities to help them master the foundational skills they will need to be successful in future educational experiences. She gives children in her classroom the opportunity to be successful while learning a variety of skills from sign language to mad science. Superb teacher!
Congratulations to Mrs. Tingle! She stopped by the News 4 Tucson studios today to talk to Allison about her award - check out the video above.
