Mrs. Wodka was nominated for the A+ Award this year by new District 204 parent, Stephanie Greenwald. In her essay, Mrs. Greenwald stated, “My daughter’s kindergarten teacher has become not only the teacher that she needs, but the teacher I needed as a parent to navigate us through this tough transition.” She went on to describe Mrs. Wodka as responsive, thoughtful, and a teacher whose genuine care for her students makes a profound impact on everyone around her.
This is Mrs. Wodka’s sixth year in District 204, and her first year as a Kindergarten teacher at Graham. She previously taught 3rd grade at McCarty Elementary. “I love making connections with students and getting to know each of them as a person,” said Mrs. Wodka. “That’s what motivates me.”
IPEF is proud to sponsor the A+ Award in its 10th year. You can nominate a staff member by visiting A+ Award.
