Jesse Steele Honored With "Teacher Who Makes A Difference" Award
SELBYVILLE, Del. - WMDT made a special visit to a local school Wednesday morning to surprise a remarkable teacher who is touching the lives of students on Delmarva.
Jesse Steele was honored with WMDT and Accurate Optical's "Teacher Who Makes A Difference Award" for the month of November.
Jesse is a sixth grade special education teacher at Selbyville Middle School. He's been teaching there for nearly 18 years now, and he actually attended the school when he was a youngster.
The student that nominated him tells WMDT that Mr. Steele helped him become successful and independent.
"I just try to motivate the students and try to preach the importance of an education, and basically your attitude and how you do in school is going to determine what you're going to become someday. So it's all about management and motivation. If you can do that, you can teach," Steele said.
