Ann E.

Not only does she work hard every single day to make sure her students learn everything a first grader needs to know, but she works hard to make them good people too.
I'm nominating my mom, Ann Edmondson, for Random Acts of Ice Cream because she is the kindness/ most selfless person I know. She has been a teacher for 34 years! Her passion for teaching is unmatched. It's not just her job... it is her hobby too. Not only does she work hard every single day to make sure her students learn everything a first grader needs to know, but she works hard to make them good people too. She leads by example, teaching her students to bekind to others, to care about each other and to lead their lives with empathy and compassion through her daily interactions. It is because of my mom that these students leave her classroom with their hearts and smiles a little bit bigger each and every day. Throughout the years, I've had her past students (even as far back as her first classes) find me on Facebook to tell me what an impact she made on them. They always want me to tell her thank you, and to say that because of her, they have become lifelong learners. It's people like my mom that are helping to change the world for the better, and I couldn't be luckier to call her mom!
