Vanessa Goldey Honored With Teacher Who Makes A Difference Award
DELMAR, Del. - Tuesday morning, Vanessa Goldey was presented with the WMDT and Accurate Optical's Teacher Who Makes a Difference award for the month of October.
Vanessa is currently a third-grade teacher at Delmar Elementary school. This is her fifth year as a teacher, and she's also taught first and second grade.
Ms. Goldey is described as an educator whose lessons are exciting, memorable and hands-on.
"A lot of students these days just need to enjoy what they're doing to be engaged and active participants, and if I'm up front everyday, all day, that's boring for them and it's boring for me too. So it's kind of fun to just explore and do hands on things. And I can actually see what they're learning. So we try and have as much fun in here as we can," Goldey said.
