Mrs. Batista, Teacher of the Month

Have you ever been given a rewarded or been recognized for doing something good?

Each month at Hughes we celebrate wonderful teachers and surprise them with a small gift. This month at Hughes Academy, Mrs.Batista is the teacher of the month.  When Mrs. Batista was first told that she was The Teacher of The Month, she said “I was excited. I wasn’t expecting it,this is the first time in 4 years that this has happened!”

Some of her students commented on what might be the reason she was chosen. “I like Mrs. Batista’s potential and her energy that she gives to us.  She just has it in her,” said Natalie V.

Mrs. Batista is just doing what she thinks is right, but she didn’t expect to be The Teacher of The Month.  “I try to be consistent and dedicated, for example if I have to ask a student to say Hola until they get it right,I will.” Spending time to help teach students at Hughes is something that Mrs. Batista loves to do. Even if it takes a while for a student to learn a word, she will be by there side to help them.
