Marc Grace – 5th Grade / St Mary’s Ballston Spa

This year whenever we had a snow day he made up a song and recorded himself singing it. Then he emailed it to all the parents to show the kids. It was great to have a snow day, but the day was even better when we get to hear our teach sing a funny song made just for us. My teacher Mr. Grace deserves the title of Saratoga Country’s Teacher of the Year, because he is like no other teacher. He puts his heart and soul into teaching and our school. Math is my favorite subject this year because of Mr. Grace. During our math lesson, our class takes a test to see what we know. Depending on what we know, we all started on different lessons. Based on that lesson, he either gave us a mini lesson or we watch a video. Then you take another test. If you don’t do so well, he gives you another lesson. If you pass you receive an exit ticket to move onto the next lesson. He does this so the class members don’t have to do a lesson they already know. He spends a lot of time planning this and it really helps everyone in the class. Mr. Grace also likes to have fun. This year whenever we had a snow day he made up a song and recorded himself singing it. Then he emailed it to all the parents to show the kids. It was great to have a snow day, but the day was even better when we get to hear our teach sing a funny song made just for us. He also has nicknames for everyone in the class. This makes everyone feel special. Mr. Grace will do anything for St. Mary’s School in Ballston Spa. He volunteers to emcee at any event at the school. Recently he shaved his head that raised over $2,000 for the school. He also volunteers to coach the Odyssey of the Mind team. He encourages each student to push him or herself further and to work together as a team. He believes in each student and pushes us to do our best. That’s why I think my teacher Mr. Grace should be Saratoga County’s Teacher of the Year.
