There was a whole lot of excitement this week at Donner Springs Elementary School as News 4 showed up to present this month's excellence in education award.
Mrs. Lynn Soncini was honored for her work at Donner Springs Elementary. Soncini was nominated by a parent who was so impressed because Mrs. Soncini was able to instill confidence and a love of learning in her son who was a student in her class. Soncini told us she remembers the feeling of lacking confidence as a child, and that's why she focuses on it now.
"I always said when i became a teacher i would make it different. I would help the children gain confidence. Make them feel they will be able to do it ," she told us.
Congratulations again to Lynn Soncini, our Excellence in Education Award winner for the month of September. And if you know of a teacher who deserves some special recognition, drop us a line here at the station...or email us at eie @ mynews4.Com.
