Overall, Ms. Haas is an amazing teacher! She’s truly a shining star in the night sky! I know every sixth grader would agree with what I’m saying, even fifth, seventh, and eighth graders think so too! After all, the green ribbon that she received was given to her by a student who isn’t in her grade! We are so fortunate to have her at our school this year. Ms. Haas, if you’re reading this, I hope you understand how much you mean to us, you’re indescribable!
