Mrs. Mary Lou Coffin

Wicomico High School

Salisbury, MD

Nomination: "Mrs. Coffin takes extra time out of her schedule to ensure her students get the extra help they need. Despite a student's poor attendance or class participation, Mrs. Coffin still doesn't give up on them, and assists them with their work as much as she would have with her star students. Mrs. Coffin has high expectations of her students, but can still be flexible and understanding with her students, instead of robotically and ignorantly counting that student as a "bad kid". Besides academic help, Mrs. Coffin also provides personal guidance by getting to know her students. She helps her students through their toughest problems. Mrs. Coffin has even sacrificed a very important meeting because she chose instead to take a phone call from one of her students about to commit suicide; after almost two hours over the phone, Mrs. Coffin convinced the student to not commit suicide. Mrs. Coffin saved her student's life. Mrs. Coffin truly is a remarkable woman, as a teacher and a person. She goes above and beyong to help not just her students, but anyone she encounters who needs her help. I consider it a blessing to have met her and have her as a teacher; she is unlike any teacher I have ever had before."
