On Tuesday December 9th, the Town of Sandwich and the Sandwich Public Schools came together to honor their employees for their years of service. Marc Smith, Principal at Forestdale, prepared these remarks to honor Mrs. Delano.
When I first entered Terri’s classroom, I knew that I had entered the place of a true master teacher. Terri artfully creates a classroom atmosphere that promotes the celebration of student differences while simultaneously holding all students to a high standard for academic growth, the development of character and the development of a sense of community. Her students know that Mrs. Delano will love and care for them while they are in her classroom. They also know that she believes in them and expects that each student will grow as a student and a person.
