Hollie Ziemba's nominator would like to remain anonymous.
Ms. Ziemba taught virtually through the pandemic. She kept the kindergarteners' attention and made learning fun! She used puppets and silly antics. The children could not wait for online class each day. It was amazing the bond that was formed between Ms. Ziemba and her students, and also between teacher and parents. Ms. Ziemba showed up for students' baseball games and tennis matches. She spent additional time online with individual students who needed that extra care. It was a special year that will not be forgotten.
Here are some comments from parents, students, and student teacher:
"I can't even do the things Ms. Ziemba is doing, in person with my son, and she's doing it virtually. Absolutely blessed that he was put in her class."
"All of our kids are so lucky to have Ms. Ziemba as their teacher! She is always being so patient, kind and amazing! It takes special people to teach kindergarten. I am so glad my son has one of the best!"
"I can't believe that in less than two weeks we are headed back to school. We are going to miss Ms. Ziemba so very much this year."
"We talk about Ms. Ziemba alot and think of her often. She will always hold a special place in our hearts."
"The relationships Ms. Ziemba made with the kids is unbelievable. "
