the perfect teaching neighbor

This week students will write blog posts inspired by the word perfect. Here's what that might look like!

There are many ways you could describe the perfect teaching neighbor...





You've met my perfect teaching neighbor - Ms. Belkov. She's all those things I mentioned above!

She's musical. Ms. Belkov sings lots of songs, like "I've had the time of my life" from Dirty Dancing. Or a song about Taco Tuesday. Or old school hip hop from the 90's that is now on 104.3.

She's silly, too. She does funny things to make you laugh, like singing in the middle school hallway with a purple stuffed mic. Or telling jokes at team meetings that make you laugh so hard you fall off your chair.

She's also hardcore. What I mean by this is that she expects a lot. If she assigns some work, you better complete it, and complete it well. You better not be rude to her, because then she will have to show you how to talk respectfully. Another thing she's hard core about? Feeling good by exercising. She wakes up SUPER early some mornings and goes to the gym. She means business about her stuff!

She's engaging. You guys, she acts things out. If I were a kid, I'd want to be in her eighth grade class. (I'm an adult and I want to be in it!) Her face lights up a room with her smile, she sings and tells jokes and dances around. All of these things are engaging about being in her presence.

But the thing that makes Ms. Belkov the perfect teaching neighbor? Well, it's that she is my friend. She helps me understand things when I'm confused, she lets me cry when I'm sad, she gives me advice when I get in a fight with my mom or sister, she teaches me yoga, and she inspires me with her work ethic. Friends do all this and more, and she's that person for me.

There's no one I'd rather have a classroom next to.
Ms. Belkov is the perfect neighbor.


  1. It's pretty awesome to have the perfect teaching neighbor! Glad for both of you!!

  2. Well, you've got me blushing! So thankful to have you has my friend, co-worker, yoga buddy, literacy coach, and baking partner (let's make another pie!) Thanks for always supporting me and letting me be myself. It took 9 years, but we are finally classroom neighbors, and I love it! Love ya, girl!

  3. We can get different ways to describe perfect teaching. All the teachers who are teaching the subject of must read this blog. They will like this blog so much and will tell about it to their students.

  4. Play against your friends, family and even strangers. Games play in the same way over and over again, no matter how "random" they claim to be. Truly playing against the best means beating other human beings, as if you can beat others like yourself, you'll be the best in the game.
