Mrs alba is always very patient with the kindergarten students, she is always very approachable and she shows them the affection that we as mothers (and fathers) cannot give them while they are away from us. My son has come so far with his concentration and learning which I believe is because mrs alba makes it fun and easy to understand with her way of teaching. She is also firm when she needs to be which lets face it, in kindergarten is needed often. When the school bell goes in the afternoon the children always walk out happy and respectful and they cuddle her before they leave which shows how much they all love her!! It takes a special kind of person to be a teacher and I'm sure most of them deserve an award, but especially mrs alba!!!!
