Agnese D'Istria was nominated by Jennifer Lembo, a parent of a student.

Ms. D'Istria has gone above and beyond for her students. She makes them all feel like they are the most amazing children/students to ever be.

"Ms. D'Istria has helped my son gain confidence and feel like he could do anything," said Lembo. "My child always doubts himself. Ms. D'Istria not only made him feel like he's the smartest kid in the whole world, but she also helped him understand his worth. She has an individual relationship with each child and makes them feel like they can do anything."

"Ms. D'Istria makes the students feel like they are one big family at school. I have seen her make children feel loved and secure when they were terrified. She is the person a parent wants to have help and look after their children when they are in school. She is the most amazing teacher my child has ever had," said Lembo.
