Congratulations to our June Teacher of the Month: Melissa Pyrch from Somers High School in Somers!

Here’s what students and parents say about Mrs. Pyrch:

Melissa is loved by her students and colleagues alike. If you check out her Instagram account (@pyrchgetspublished) you will see she inspires students by her motivating greetings each morning. Virtual teaching didn’t stop her from presenting the curriculum in a fun, caring way. She inspires her students to do their best in pursuing their dream. The other day she teamed up with a colleague by having her students do yoga and relating it to a reading passage. She is fresh, she is intelligent she is professional, she is compassionate she is the best!!

Melissa Pyrch is a life-changing teacher. She not only is one of the best English/Public Speaker teachers who relates the material to real-life but she also cares about her student’s wellbeing as it pertains to outside the classroom. She even is writing a self-help memoir that is dedicated to all of her students about the lessons she has learned throughout her life based on the conversations she has had after the bell has rung.

Congratulations to our May Teacher of the Month: Mary Guerriero from Marlboro Elementary School in Marlboro!

Here’s what students and parents say about Mrs. Guerriero:

You should honor Marry Guerriero because she is a wonderful teacher. For example, she keeps everyone interested in what we are doing, she helps people if they don’t under stand or if they are stuck on something like a lesson, she encourages everyone to participate for example she will through in a peace of candy to whom ever she called on and got it right and then everyone raised their hand, she lets you do the work independently so she can see if you can figure out the problems, she also lets you pick out a partner for the lesson and you can do your work together but now in COVID she still lets you do partners but with you mask on and social distanced, and last but not least she keeps you interacting with what we are doing.

Congratulations to our April Teacher of the Month: Kyle Roach from St. Denis – St. Columba in Hopewell Junction!

Here’s what students and parents say about Mr. Roach:

WHUD should honor my fifth grade teacher Mr.Roach because he is awesome. Mr.Roach is new to St.Columba this year just like I am. This is my first year at the school and I love it because of my teacher Mr.Roach. He make me want to try and push myself to do the best that I can in all of the subjects. He teaches our class Math, Religion, Social Studies, Science and ELA. One of my favorite subjects is Grammar because Mr.Roach makes learning fun. One time we were learning exclamatory phrases and he acted out the phrase, “watch out!” We all jumped out of our seats. It was very funny. He also calls me the preposition Queen! Mr. Roach is also very patient when he teaches our class. Sometimes it is hard because he teaches kids in school and he teaches the kids at home on the computer at the same time. Sometimes the internet doesn’t work. I really like how Mr.Roach doesn’t. keep us on the computer all day. He lets us do fun sheets! Did I mention Mr.Roach is also an alien. We hear weird ringing noises that randomly go off in the class sometimes. There are also about 35 little green aliens in the class that are his friends. They come from their home to watch over us. He is a little “sus“, AKA suspicious! These are my reasons why Mr.Roach should be honored as the (Alien) Teacher of the Month! -Isabella L.

Congratulations to our March Teacher of the Month: Thomas Locmajian from the Karafin School in Mt. Kisco!

Here’s what students and parents say about Mr. Loc:
You should honor this teacher because Mr. Loc makes learning about History fun. He is the funniest teacher known to man and he gives nicknames to every single one of his students. History seems easy and I seemed to pay more attention when he is the one teaching. He also shaves his head for the saint baldricks fondation. To help cure child cancer.
