Earlier today Mrs. Tanya Copeland, a 3rd grade teacher at Wilcox County Elementary School, was surprised by a news crew from Macon’s Channel 13 WMAZ. Destiny Tisdol, a student in Mrs. Copeland’s class, wrote a letter to WMAZ explaining why she thought that Mrs. Copeland deserved to be recognized for her diligent work. Here is the letter that Destiny wrote:
“My teacher Mrs. Tanya Copeland is tops because she picks helpers ever Tuesday when we come back to school. This is fair because one week two girls are the helpers then the next week two boys are the helpers. When it is time to do the pledge the helpers go get the flag, and hold the flag together. Also, the helpers run a lot of errandings. My teacher teaches us Science. One day we got to make a eatable animal habitat. We made the animal habitat with, oatmeal pie, gummy bears, pretzels, lucky charms, and whale crackers. Also, one day we made a sedimentary rock. We made it with wet dirt, and rocks. We put the dirt in the cup then, put the rocks in there, and started mixing it with a spoon. We got wax paper poured it out on the wax paper, and beat it with the spoon. We let it dry it was a sedimentary rock but, it looked like a rock cookie.”
Congratulations to Mrs. Copeland for her great work in teaching her students, and thanks to Destiny for writing her letter and sending it to WMAZ.
