Dear Ms. Nicole: I would like to thank you for being a wonderful teacher. You are considerate, hardworking, and try your best to make us have fun when we learn. You listen to our ideas and problems and give us great advice when we need help. You are thoughtful and can tell when one of your students is feeling down. You have the instincts of a parent, are hardworking, kind, and smart. You make sure no one is falling behind and you challenge us to improve our skills. You are a teacher of many strengths and talents. You are independent and intelligent. You try your hardest to get the job done each and every day. You push us because you want the best for us. I wish most teachers are like you. You are truly one of a kind. To us, you are irreplaceable. You are not just a teacher at Tanapag Middle School. You are part of the Tanapag family.

Teacher: BEATRICE FATIALOFA
Subject: Fine Arts
Ms. Beatrice is a wonderful teacher! I’ve known her since elementary school and I’ve come to realize her strengths. One is the Lord. She will put Him first in any situation, bad or good. Ms. Beatrice strives and fights to provide the best for her students. She teaches art and her students look forward to going to her class. I enjoy her class because it is fun and also because she shows us that art generates a love of learning and creativity.
Where do I start? I’m very lucky to have you, Ms. Beatrice! I’ve known you for five years, and I can honestly say that you are a really good teacher. You lead us students to the right path and talk to us often about where we should go and what we should do instead of just dropping out of school. You are amazing and wonderful to me. Thank you, Ms. Beatrice, for helping to guide me in the right direction, and helping me through my ups and downs and struggles. Love you! Happy Teacher Appreciation Week from your Tataga family!

Teacher: ELUENE BAZA
Subject: Social Studies
Every teacher has his or her own technique, routine, and way of teaching, but it was Ms. Baza’s character that I have become fonder of. Growing up with Ms. Baza as my teacher, she was always one who stood out with spirit and enthusiasm. She was one that showed us there was more to life after high school. Ms. Baza was there every step of the way through elementary and middle school. Every typical teacher like Ms. Baza was fun and creative in their own way, but Ms. Baza was the most tolerant of all. She distinguished right and wrong and exhibited impressive guidance toward us students. She comes to school walking with pride and enters the classroom with passion and attitude. While Ms. Baza is teaching, she doesn’t let any negative effects interfere with her day. Ms. Baza inspires students to pursue productive and innovative careers. She is one of the most straight up teachers I know, teaching us lessons in life and how to make right choices to succeed. When I am in high school, I will surely miss the memorable moments I had with Ms. Baza. Happy Teacher Appreciation Week from your Tataga family!
