Here’s what Kallie had to say about Lisa:
What sets this teacher apart from others?
Miss Pomazal is a great teacher because she loves to do interactive projects with her class. For example she turned our whole classroom into a ship. Even though it was a fun project we still learned a lot about Bishop Hill and the immigrants that moved there a long time ago. She can make learning super fun. She cares about her students no matter what. She wants everyone in her class to succeed!
What is one thing this teacher does that is not in their job description but they do it anyway to help you or your child?
Miss Pomazal makes sure that everyone knows how to do whatever we our doing in class. She does not have to do that. She could just keep moving on.
Give an example of a way this teacher has helped or impacted you or your child.
Miss Pomazal has really inspired me to read tons of books this year. She has also inspired me to stop getting so frustrated in math.
