Manley received eight nominations!
Below are some quotes from the nominations.
“Mrs. Manley is more than just a teacher to me, she not only helps me with work that I need to catch up on but she helps me with anything else I need that's not dealing with just school related. She took me to the doctor the other day for not feeling well, being nice and taking my mom’s place for a moment. Anybody would love to have Mrs. Manley at their school for a week. She's a great school supporter and is very responsible for what she's in charge of.”
“She comes and helps everyone… She is really helpful and trustworthy.”
“She is the best teacher that the students can have at Hertford County High School. We call her Ma Manley, because she loves to teach her kids and wants the best for us.”
“She is my senior advisor and helps me with all of my senior requirements. She teaches in our Math classes, Geometry, Algebra 2, and AFM. She has special love for children.”
“She has helped out a lot of students she is very kind and caring and willing to help anyone in this school.”
