Mrs Holleron an amazing teacher!  She always teaches us great things and encourages us to keep going!
 

She pushes us to our limits and is amazingly tolerant with our noisy classroom. Mrs Holleron always finds positives in every situation.
                                         

Mrs Holleron always helps everyone to understand what they're learning and what it's  trying to tell them. She's super nice.

Miss Cinjee is a lovely teacher to have. She is probably one of the most fun teachers I've ever had. She does fun games with the class whether it's inside or outside. Overall I think Miss Cinjee is an amazing teacher and any student would be lucky to have her. 
Miss Cinjee is a kind teacher that respects her students. She helps kids and explains things really well. 

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.
