BATON ROUGE, La. (BRProud) – Teacher Appreciation Week runs from May 4 to May 8 and one local teacher is going above and beyond to make sure her students continue to learn.

Shenandoah Elementary fourth-grade teacher, Nicole Montgomery, is teaching her students from a distance and not in a way you might expect.

Distance learning has gone the digital route for many local teachers, but Mrs. Montgomery decided that some in person time would be beneficial for her students.

The fourth-grade teacher decided to make local porches and driveways her classroom.

Mrs. Montgomery wrote: “Did a little distance reading today. Great talks and reading about Greek Mythology while staying 6 ft apart. Another front door reading and book talk.” 

Do you know of any amazing local teachers that deserve recognition during Teacher Appreciation Week?
