I wanted to take a moment to recognize Sherrene St. Peters. She is my daughter’s second grade teacher.

While I have nothing but wonderful things to say about all the teachers and administration in the Hadley school system, Sherrene is special. My oldest daughter also had Mrs. St. Peters for her second grade teacher and I appreciated and recognized her dedication, skills, knowledge, experience and compassion then, just as much as I do now.

Sherrene puts in 200% effort in everything she does and it shows. She goes so far above and beyond what is expected of her. She is a perfect portrayal of the positive impact teachers can have on the lives of children and their families.

Sherrene is amazing during “normal” times, but now, during this horribly challenging time, she somehow found a way to shine even brighter. She has been such an astounding source of comfort, security and stability for my daughter. There are certainly no rules or manuals on how to teach during a pandemic, but Sherrene seamlessly figured it out and is exemplary.

I want Sherrene to be recognized for who she is and the amazing work she does. I truly do not know how we would have survived this school year without her. I want Sherrene to know that all her hard work, attention to detail, compassion, and the extras she offers are noticed.

I want her to know that I see her when she calls me at 6 p.m., when she is just leaving school for the day, to update me on how my daughter’s day went. I see her printing out my emailed copy of my daughter’s school picture form that I forgot to put in my daughter’s backpack on picture day and running to the gym to give it to the photographers for me.

I see her emailing me on weekends about my daughter, wondering how her appointment with the doctor went and seeing if there is anything she can do to help. I see her when the students are remote, emailing parents with plenty of notice so that we have time to plan for our child’s school day before we begin our own workday.

I see her setting up extra Zoom sessions during her lunch time for students that need some one-on-one time with her. I see her looking at my child and all her other students with true compassion, in a way that makes a mother feel a sense of joy and security knowing that their child will be in her competent, caring hands.

I see her appreciating and enjoying the gifts and joy that children can offer. I see her at pick up getting the children ready and waiting at the door to be picked up, while diligently ensuring their safety as the cars drive up and away. I see her wonderful ability to teach when my daughter reads me a book, offers me science facts, quizzes me on math, and explains historical events.

Finally, I see a teacher with passion, dedication, compassion, and talent that is unsurpassed, yet is so humble that she simply believes that what she does is “just her job.” While I know her colleagues are aware of how wonderful Sherrene is, I wanted others to experience it from my perspective, as a mother and a recipient of her efforts.

This is teacher appreciation week, and I have been thinking of what I can possibly give Sherrene to show my gratitude for all she is and all she does. I realized that acknowledgement may possibly be the best thing I could offer, so this is us acknowledging Sherrene for the amazing teacher she is and showing our sincere appreciation for all she does.
