Principal Angela Barnes says Ms. McDow got off to a fast start.
"This is only her second year teaching, but you would think she has been here for years," said Barnes. "She gives it everything she has. She looks at each student as her student and she goes way above."
She is efficient as well.
"She uses every minute wisely to get those students where they need to be."
"It says so much. I love my job, I love my kids, I love this school. I can’t really say enough." said McDow.
Who nominated Ms. McDow? China Wilson did. Her son Braiden is in her class.
"My little boy came home and he said, 'Mama, I learned this and I learned that. I taught you this or I taught you that. I know she would be a perfect fit.'" said Wilson.
We asked Ms. McDow what message she wants her students to take away from her class.
"At the end of the day, no matter what happens that they are loved and I love them very much and I want them to be successful and everything I do in here is for them," said McDow.
