IT&E presented Dayoung Han from Hopwood Middle School with the IT&E Favorite Teacher award.
IT&E held a social media contest to give the community the opportunity to share their appreciation for teachers and reflect on the impact teachers have on the lives and development of our youth.
Han teaches 8th grade science and has been teaching for two years.
“I love meeting students, making small talk and getting to know each of them better.”
In addition to the title of Favorite Teacher, she also received a massage for two and a $100 gift certificate for school supplies.
“I was very surprised when students emailed me to tell me that I won. I’m thankful they thought of me and nominated me,” Han said.
The contest was held simultaneously in Guam. Andrea Mayoyo-Buan of Tiyan Middle School won the title of Guam’s Favorite Teacher.
“With our Favorite Teacher contest, we wanted to commemorate our islands’ teachers and their dedication to our children, as well as give our community the opportunity to show their appreciation for their teachers. We received thousands of nominations in the CNMI and Guam. We’re heartened to see so many students and members of the community support the educators in our community,” said Rose Soledad, general manager of IT&E
The contest was launched on World Teacher’s Day last Oct. 5. The nomination period was held from Oct. 5 to 12. (PR)
