Teutopolis, Fourth grade, Mrs. Mette



Tory Tensen

Are you looking for a Mother of the Year? Well, I know who you should pick... Megan Thompson! Please search no longer because I’ve found her!

The first reason is because she is helpful. She cleans a lot and I like it because my family likes a clean house. Also, she is a good cook. She makes meals every night. She also helps with homework if I get stuck. She’s a good helper.

The second reason is that she’s a nice person. She’s always cheerful, and if I’m feeling sad, she cheers me up. She’s always sweet and nice to everyone. Also she’s joyful and always happy.

I hope you pick my mom. She’s the best lady ever.

My mom’s name is Denise Weichman. She is the best mom ever and would make the best Mother of the Year. I love my mom.

My first reason is my mom is very helpful. She helps me with my homework and helps my dad make breakfast every morning. My mom also helps keep the house clean. She also helps my family have clothing. She helps my sister and me with getting up in the morning. My mom is the best mom ever.

The best reason is my mom is loving. She loves everybody in her life. She loves our whole family. My mother is a very loving person.

I think you should pick my mom for Mother of the Year. My mom is the best. She would make an awesome Mother of the Year.

My mom is Laura Will (a.k.a. future mother of the year). My mom should be Mother of the Year because she is a nurse and can help anyone.

The best reason why my mom should be Mother of the Year is because she is very hardworking. For one thing, she has to take care of six kids, but she does a pretty awesome job at it. Also, she is on her feet 24/7 all day whether it’s at home or at the hospital. I know I couldn’t do that. Another reason is she barely gets time to rest. It’s like on day she’s paying bills, next day she has to work late, and then she has to go to a party. Finally, she usually cleans the house all by herself, including the downstairs. My mom would fit perfect for being Mother of the Year.

Another reason why my mom should be Mother of the Year is because she is very supporting. One way she is supporting is when she cheers me on during sports. Next, she always says that even if our team doesn’t win its important that we do our best. Finally, she supports my siblings and I to good on our tests. I think we need a supporting mom like mine to be mother of the year.

Are you looking for a great woman for this year’s Mother of the Year? Choose my mom and your pick will be a great success.

Lexi Will
