Hello, I am a freshman at the new Sartell High School. I would like to nominate Mrs. Zidon for the Teacher of the Week award. I think that Mrs. Zidon is a good representative for this award because she is fun, awesome, funny, amazing, and super cool! Her first year teaching at Sartell was three years ago in 2016-17, when I was in sixth grade. Back then she was Miss Jensen. My Grade was the first class of students she ever taught in Sartell. I remember liking her from the moment I walked into the classroom. After that year, she moved up to the high school to teach ninth grade. Luckily for me, after many years of hoping and praying, I got her once again for the end of this year. Even if it is for only one quarter/term, I know I will have a great time. Mrs. Zidon is a perfect nominee for the Teacher of the Week award because she is funny, awesome, amazing, super fun, and cool. She isn't afraid to be her weird, goofy self. She is a younger teacher, so I feel like it is easier for her to relate to us students because not too long ago, she was in our shoes. She really has done so much for me, for us students. I just want to pay her back for everything she's done, even though no amount of words or actions could express my thanks to her. Thank You Mrs. Zidon!
