Teacher of the Week: Ruth Pitstick
NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Our Teacher of the Week, Ruth Pitstick, says she puts her heart and soul into her second grade students. She says she approaches each day ready to love.
“That’s really my biggest thing is to love my kids so they can learn to love and love to learn,” Pitstick said.
Mrs. Pitstick’s students are currently learning how to handle money, which they are rewarded with when they follow directions. She says they also enjoy reading with one another and researching.
“I think the best part of the day is when everyone is smiling and learning,” she said. “I get advice from them about what they want to learn and how they want to learn,”Pitstick said.
This particular group has been together since first grade with Mrs P, as they affectionately call her, at the head of the classroom.
“I love being their school Momma. Their hugs, I love their smiles. I love that they come to me with their concerns and joys,” she said.
The parent who nominated Mrs. P wrote “she has the personality of an angel… I am thankful as a parent and truly at peace and comfortable with her having my son’s path to success…”
