Tanya Mock Honored With "Teacher Who Makes A Difference" Award

Posted: Updated:

MILLSBORO, Del. - Tuesday morning 47 ABC made a special surprise visit to East Millsboro Elementary school to recognize a remarkable teacher.

Tanya Mock was honored with 47 ABC and Accurate Optical's "Teacher Who Makes A Difference" award, for the month of March. Currently teaching 5th grade, this is Ms. Mock's 18th year as an educator.

She says the key to making a difference in a student's life is making personal connections.

"I try to instill in my kids that it's not just about being a student focusing on academics. It's about the whole person, it's about the whole child. Getting to know them, their families, their backgrounds, their loves, their interests -- I stay involved with my kids as they move forward. They're not just in my classroom one year and then they move on. I stay involved with them through college, marriage, babies, all those great things," she said.
