My favourite teacher is Mr Stanton because he is really nice and really really funny. He taught me good and he knew if it was too easy or if it was too hard. If it was too hard he would help me and if it was too easy he would make it harder. He made me want to come to school every day because if I was worried he would help me and if I was sad he would help me too and he would help me every day if I needed some help

Mrs C is kind and caring because if someone gets hurt or doesn’t believe in themselves she still believes in you whenever you are stuck. 

My teacher Mrs C is many things from having a ‘dry personality’ to caring about even the smallest of things in nature. Here are some things about her...She can take a joke, she cares for little things in nature like worms, she nearly always has a positive attitude, she will always offer to help.
