Zandra Morgan Wins Top Teacher

Congratulations to the Collaborative Teacher at Madison Elementary School!

MADISON, Ala. - At Madison Elementary School, you'll hear plenty of compliments about Zandra Morgan, The Valley's Top Teacher.

"She's really kind and generous. I'm really thankful she's at this school. She's really helped me a lot," said one student.

"I really like Mrs. Morgan. She's my favorite teacher since second grade," said another student. "She makes math fun for me."

Being a teacher is what Mrs. Zandra Morgan has always wanted.

"Ever since I was a little kid, I was the child who every family became a student in my classroom, whether it be animals, I had everyone join me," said Mrs. Morgan.

The Valley's Top Teacher says watching her students succeed is the best part of her job.

"Our desire for every child is to know they're successful in who they are, and they have something they have to offer," said Morgan. "That's one of the best things we can offer a child -- to give a child confidence, and to make them think they can impact the world."

Mrs. Morgan says teaching through multiple modalities is the key to retention and life-long education.

"They need to write it, build it, say it, draw it, read it, create it, they need to interact with it," said Morgan. "That's how students internalize. So they can apply it outside of a small group setting."

Students say Mrs. Morgan's patience, positivity and kindness earns her an A+ in the classroom.

"Whenever I'm confused, she gives me 3 to 5 minute breaks," said one student.

"Everyone has strengths," said Mrs. Morgan. "We have to help them find build on that strength. We want to help them build on it, and any weaknesses that they may have, we can have them become strengths."
