Music that Describes Elizabeth

Elizabeth Wiers was nominated by Lindsey Henchel, a parent of a student.

"Mrs. Wiers has had a big impact on my daughter, Evelyn," explains Henchel. "Starting preschool right before COVID made things harder for my daughter. Being a parent who's sending their child to school for the first time is hard for everyone. Evelyn was shy, did not talk much, and had some separation anxiety. Mrs. Wiers was such a loving, caring, and amazing teacher. I wish we could have her all the way through high school!"

"Evelyn is now in kindergarten, and she still asks about Mrs. Wiers every single day," said Henchel. "We love her like family. I'll forever be grateful, not only for her kindness, but for the love my child has for her. She made Evelyn so comfortable with other kids, herself, and talking about her feelings. Not many teachers have this big of an impact on a child, especially that young."

"I want to thank Mrs. Wiers for everything she has done. I will always be thankful for her. We will always remember her as Evelyn's favorite teacher. For years to come, I think Evelyn will always ask how she's doing, will want to visit her, and love her," said Henchel.
