She stays at the school late at night, on weekends for her students especially the ones that struggle.” Kellert described how she has influenced his teaching. Saying, “She gives a lot of positive energy and encouragement in her teaching and she doesn’t make things easier such as a test and work sheets, she just works harder and leaves the test at the same level.”
