Rebecca Mickelsen, French Teacher at Crystal Lake South
"Ms. Mickelsen is an absolutely amazing person. She is my French teacher, and she's had one of the biggest impacts on me. She is constantly asking questions about your life, and you can tell that she really, really cares about you. She's one of those people who are genuinely so sweet, and she cares about each of her students. I came into French 2 not knowing much French because of the last program I was in, but she had made me understand so much, and she's always there to help me, whether it's school work or personal life. She's gone through so much these past couple of months, and I honestly could not think of another person more worthy than she for earning the recognition that she deserves. Thank you for making this contest, because teachers deserve recognition!" - Rebecca M.
