We love our teachers. And we love surprising a different teacher every week with goodies from Great Harvest Bread, gift cards from Coyote Moon Grille and Concrete Image Salon, and a beautiful award from All-Star Trophy and Awards.

This week, our teacher of the week is Ben Broderick, 6th grade math teacher at Athlos Academy! Here is the letter that student Gabby Kuschel sent to us, telling us about Ben:

I have had Mr.Broderick for three years and he is the BEST teacher ever, because he is understanding, kind, funny and makes learning fun too! I am always comfortable asking for help, and he always takes his time to make sure I understand it. And if I ever have a bad day, he always make sure to ask what is wrong and if I am ok. I feel so lucky to have had him these last three years & I and others hope when we move on to 7th grade next year, that he will move up with us like he has the past 3 years!!!
Mr. “B” Is AMAZING!!!!! Can you PLEASE Help Us Show Him Just How Amazing We All Think He Is!!!! Thank You So Much!!!
Gabby Kuschel 6th Grade.....

Thank you, Ben, for making a difference in the lives of your students every day!
