Ms Bottali, teacher assistant at Canterbury Street School in worcester, was honored by WSRS as the September 2013 Teacher of the Month. 

Winning Letter:

Ms.Bottali is an assistant teacher who has stepped up to plate since her main teacher went out on leave shortly after school started. I believe she told me she has been in this classroom for 15 yrs along with the main teacher who is out. My daughter looks forward to going to school every day, even when she is sick. She begs to go see Ms B. It’s great to know we have her in the school system. She has been making sure the classroom runs smoothly while substitute teachers are filling in. The class recently did a project involving some pine cones that bare seeds and she double checked with me regarding my daughters allergies. My daughter Kaitlyn loves school and looks forward to going everyday, even when she is sick.
