Congratulations to North Pocono EA member Sherri Hughes and her third-grade student, Lillianna. They’re the winners of the “My Teacher is an Olympian” contest, sponsored by PSEA, Partners for Public Education, and the Pennsylvania PTA.
Hughes is a third-grade teacher at Moscow Elementary Center in North Pocono School District, Lackawanna and Wayne counties.
The “My Teacher is an Olympian” contest was open to students in kindergarten through third grade. Students were asked to write three original reasons explaining why their nominee shows one or all of the following qualities of an Olympian: friendship, solidarity, and fair play. They were also asked to illustrate one or more reasons.
