I am the school counselor at the school where Ms. Tuttle works. She is an incredible teacher and our students love her! I hear so many positive comments about her from our students and parents and have been able to see the difference she makes in our students' lives. Her teaching has gotten students who never liked or felt they were strong at English to enjoy it and develop crucial skills in writing and reading. Her classes are not easy but students will do the work without complaining because they want to make her proud. She truly cares about students and loves teaching. She's also an inspiring person to work with.

My daughter is about to start school at Levine Middle College HS. She has already reached for support and mentoring during her time off in the summer. She provided strategies for success and wants students to be ready for day 1. I am excited for my daughter to attend this school because she will be around passionate teachers like Ms. Tuttle. She seems to go the extra mile for all students.
