inspires dreams and helps provide the tools
to turn those dreams into realities.
It takes a special teacher to inspire students to do their best...
It takes a teacher like you.
Dear Mrs. Pinkerton,
You have inspired Karrine beyond words.
And now you have inspired me as a future Teacher. You are truly a treasure
to our family.
Angie Mascari & Family
like you to know what an outstanding year this has been for John. As
parents, we are sending our children to school and entrusting it daily
with their personal and intellectual growth. This can indeed be
intimidating when you realize that one person, in a period of nine months,
can influence your child's most important growing years. It can often
affect critical choices throughout the child's life. A child's potential
can be either enhanced or suppressed by a teacher.
that John has had a year with you that will profoundly affect his further
school years. He has learned to expand his boundaries and his potential
while at the same time developing self-direction.
managed to enhance his abilities and provide a creative and interactive
classroom environment which John looked forward to daily. I appreciate the
care and concern you demonstrate towards your students. I especially
appreciate it for my own son, John. He could not have had a better year.
We all wanted to say congratulations on
being named "Teacher of the Year!" If any person in education
I'm looking forward to helping with your
class in '98-'99... To this day Chris says you're the best teacher he's ever
had. His organizational skills are attributed to you!
Again, congratulations and have a
restful, fun summer. Maybe we'll run into each other at the tanning salon!
Tom, Cindy, Chris & Kellie Thompson
just wanted to take a few minutes to express my appreciation to you for the
job you've been doing in teaching your students. Especially so lately
because of the crisis our nation is currently involved in. I think you've
shown great compassion to your students in allowing them to express their
fears & concerns. I've learned from Tim that you've set aside class time
to discuss their questions. I thank you for doing so. I believe it has
helped Tim, not only understand what is going on in the world, but also how
events touch each person individually. He has, I think, a better
understanding of what is going on than I do. Certainly he is more aware of
things around him than I was at the same age.
too, is appreciative for the opportunity you gave to ask questions about
what may or may not happen. There were questions asked that he was reluctant
to express himself.

guidance and encouragement this year. Thanks to you and Mrs. Kruger, Michael

education and feelings of self-worth!
thanks to both of you.

you for the great job as Natasha's teacher this year. You are truly
for helping to make Kevin's 6th grade year a good one! He has really enjoyed
your class and grown so positively.
Have a good
summer vacation! We'll see you in 1993 when David starts kindergarten.
have been on my mind lately--and I felt like I needed to write to you
to thank you for the wonderful influence as a teacher you have had on
my children. Because Randi loved and adored you as her 5th grade
teacher--she decided to be an elementary school teacher when she chose
her major in college. She taught 2nd grade for 2 years before she
stopped teaching to raise her family (2 boys--2 year and 4 months)
Julie--not sure what she wanted to study--decided to do as Randi and
got her degree in teaching as well. She taught 5th grade for 2 1/2
years before she had her twin daughters back in November. Now JoEllen--entering
her freshman year has chosen the same profession as her sisters
because of their good example to her. See what you started? :)
you for being such a good example to them--teaching in such a
professional and loving way. A teacher's influence truly touches
multitudes! Thank you for touching the lives of my children.
you for making Davids last year at Castle View Such a memorable and
Pleasant one. I appreciate your hard work in getting The children
ready for Jr. high. I Know The change will be a Smooth one Thanks to
a wonderful teacher.

son, Andrew, this year. We are so pleased he was in your 5th grade class.
He is very much prepared for the "Big Grades" now.
you'll enjoy your much deserved vacation!

Appreciation Week." Your caring and thoughtful ways are very much
appreciated, your ability to listen and understand each student's
unique gifts make you a wonderful teacher!
would like to Thank You for being Daryl's Teacher. (5th grade) We thank

Pinkerton have a lovely Summer and God Bless You.
so much for being faithful to your calling as an educator. Rebecca has had
a wonderful 5th grade year, thanks to your leadership.
also for allowing me the opportunity to help this year. I really enjoyed
myself and the students.
is that your summer will be refreshing and revitalizing--
MRS. PINKERTON AND A-3,
IT IS VERY APPARENT FROM HOW YOUR
CLASSROOM LOOKED FOR OPEN HOUSE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN BUSY DOING QUALITY
WORK. YOUR CLASSROOM WAS OUTSTANDING (I LOOKED AT ALMOST ALL OF THEM)!
THANK-YOU MRS. PINKERTON FOR THE GREAT TEACHING SKILLS.
Mrs. & Mr. Pinkerton
I am aware you have heard this saying
many many times "Children Learn What they Have Lived". This is
true & Chase has been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to have
two wonderful people to teach him with such a positive way to learn and be
a good valued person in life. He has progressed so much this year in many
areas. Our Family will pray for Mr. "P"'s continued recovery.
Our prayers are with you both. Thank you.
and I both want to thank you for giving Jay such a memorable and
rewarding year. You set high standards, expected the kids to do their
best and really challenged all of them. Most of all, you laid a firm
foundation for the challenges of middle school--we particularly
been a great year--you found ways to encourage Jay to read, to write, and
to research. You emphasized the fact that there are lots of ways to
learn, and you understood that our crazy travel plans could actually
surround some real inquiry. Jay was always inspired by the independent
study projects you assigned, and your questions motivated some probing
that wouldn't have happened otherwise. Most importantly, Jay has
enormous respect for you--when he was tempted to slack off, your
approval was as important to him as our own.
can't tell you how often he talks of you--"Mrs. Pinkerton
says..." is one of his favorite phrases. He may not realize it
yet, but I know that your influence will always be felt--I'm fairly
sure that he'll forever put his hand over his heart at the mention of
in this day of an often casual approach to image and attitude, thanks
for bucking the trend. You always look lovely, and you show the kids
that you value your job and them--and that presentation matters. At
their age, it's a subtle message, but an important one.
for being such a great teacher--you certainly deserve your award!
you have a wonderful, relaxing summer--and that your husband's health
continues to improve.
& Jack Aggareth
Thank you for a wonderful year and
congratulations on your retirement.
If you could call me on my cell
phone and tell me Richards grades I would appreciate it.
