NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Think back to first grade, you probably remember your teacher. First Grade teacher Tracey Failla is making a big impact on her students at Pine Valley Elementary School. That’s why she is our Teacher of the Week.
It was clear her students thought she was amazing, and that’s something she wants them to know too. Failla says, “That’s my hope for every student in my class is that I can show them how amazing they are.”
How does she harness all the energy of a room full of six year olds? She tells us she teaches them to be responsible citizens in the classroom and are responsible for their learning.
She wants here students to remember this advice in the future, “They can make an impact on the people around them whether its at home at school or at their workplace someday. That their actions and the words they use can really change the lives of others.”
