(ABC 6 News) -- This week's Excellent Educator is a middle school teacher who encourages her students everyday to be their best.
Sarah Attig teaches 6th at Alden-Conger Public School and loves a good challenge.
"I like the challenge of something different every day, even every year, even the things you do over and over again," says Attig. "A new group of kids bring in something different every day."
For example, how they learn about math and science through lab work.
"The kids like it, its hands on, I just want them to enjoy it, the math and science, its outside of just text book and reading. There are also lab experiments you can do, it just gets the kids really involved with the learning process," she says.
And at the end of the day, she tells her kids, if you remember one thing in this class its this: "let them know they can do it, they do have the skills to be successful!"
