March Teacher Of The Month: Nancy Lovera

Each month, Marshall ISD celebrates the outstanding contributions of our campus faculty to the overall educational experience of our students. These professionals work countless extra hours at home, on weekends, and over holiday breaks with one focus in mind -- to make MISD and their campus Marshall Proud and Maverick Strong for our students.

The Teacher of the Month for March 2018 at David Crockett Elementary School, as selected by Principal, Mrs. Angela Fitzpatrick, is Nancy Lovera, third-grade teacher!

"I am so proud to announce Nancy as our Teacher of the Month," said Mrs. Fitzpatrick in nominating Mrs. Lovera. "She tried doubting herself and was always frustrated because she wanted to be perfect. Others, as well as myself, always told her she was doing a great job and her students were doing an amazing job. She often cried because she was not sure if she was doing enough. However, when the Spring Benchmark data was available her students soared and had the highest scores and growth on the campus. Thank you, Nancy, for caring so much for your students and wanting them to have the very best."

What  do you see as your most important role as a teacher?: "I enjoy teaching. It allows me to give them the experience of someone who really accepts them for who they are. Sometimes students need a person in their life to lean on. I feel that it's an honor to be that person. Teaching is also very important because you could be a good influence to so many students and though I may have some challenges in the classroom, it’s all worth it to see the difference I make in their lives."

What do you enjoy the most about teaching specifically at David Crockett? "I learn something from my students every day. It is very rewarding to work with my students; every year I end up getting attached to them as we learn and grow together.
I enjoy working at David Crockett. I’ve been working here for about eight-plus years. I have worked as a first grade teacher for one year, second grade teacher for about seven years. And now I’m currently working as a third grade teacher. It’s a joy to be working with Mrs. Fitzpatrick. This is my first year working with her. She strives the best for our students and tries so hard to provide us with the tools we need so they can be successful."

What are some things you hope to accomplish in your career? Future plans?: "I do not know what the future holds but one thing I know for sure is that our God has a plan for me. I really want for my students to be compassionate learners, to improve themselves in this country. I want to be remembered as someone that always encouraged them to dream big and believing that those dreams can become reality by their hard work and dedication."
