Hamill Awarded Outstanding Teacher
Scott and Fran Undercoffler have nominated their teacher, Marge Hamill of Collage Le Castillon, for the Trucker Buddy International Outstanding Teacher Award. In his letter, Scott Undercoffler describes how Hamill goes above and beyond for her students. Read the Undercofflers' full nomination letter below:
We were teamed up with Mrs. Hamill last year. She is a fantastic teacher. She periodically sends us so of the work that the kids ate working on. She teaches English as a second language to her students. Last year we along with my parents who are retired teachers went over to visit and talk with the students we had such a great time we decided to return this year. Sometimes when we come home there are letters waiting for us. Both last year and this year when we got home she had sent over handmade Christmas cards from all her classes. She has 5 classes at two different schools. This year when we went over her husband was away on business yet she still insisted that Fran and I stay at her home with her 2 boys. She even cooked all the meals while we were there except one day when I wanted to cook for her. Every year she puts together along with the help of the school staff an American day. Even the school chef and kitchen staff get involved. After our visits she wrote an article for the local paper. She maintains a school blog the students have access to all in English. She works extremely hard to involve us and her students as much as possible. Occasionally we get to Skype with the kids in the classroom so they can ask us questions. Mrs. Hamill goes above and beyond any duties required by her schools and it shows in how excited the students are to walk through her door everyday.
Scott and Fran
