This week's teacher of the week, brought to you by ETM Solar Works, is first grade teacher, Mrs. Ashlee Marsh. "I knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was in 3rd grade," said Marsh. 

Marsh was nominated by a former student's mother, Andrea Gregory. "Austin loved having her as a teacher. She pushed him to keep reading. He loved that she built a family in their classroom," said Gregory. 

For Marsh, she says the most rewarding part of being a teacher is: "When they have those 'ah ha' moments. I always tell the kids that their reading gives me goosebumps. There's truly nothing better than listening to a first grader read."

"I'm just so glad he ended up in her class," said student parent, Gregory.

Congratulations to Mrs. Marsh, at Owego Elementary School, and the entire Owego Apalachin Central School District!
