Our 2018 October LSP National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Farrah Nawar from our Alpharetta, GA location! Ms. Farrah is the lead teacher in the toddler classroom, Where the Wild Things Are.

Ms. Farrah has been with LSP for two years now and has been in a multitude of classrooms throughout her time. When asked what she loves most about the toddler group that she currently teaches, she responded “I absolutely love the relationships I have built with the kids in my class and the families”. Her classroom does curriculum projects every day, but her favorite one yet has been planting flowers with her kiddos. “The really enjoy sensory projects and absolutely love to get their hands dirty!”.

When asked who or what inspires her the most, here’s what Ms. Farrah had to say “The positive feedback from LSP as a whole inspires me every day. I am also so encouraged and inspired by my leadership team and my peers!”

Here’s what Ms. Farrah’s supervisor had to say about her: “Her love for her job and every child never goes unnoticed. She walks in with a smile on her face every day and brings such joy to our entire school. You can always find Ms. Farrah at any school function actively participating! Thank you so much for all that you do Ms. Farrah!”

Outside of working at LSP, Ms. Farrah enjoys art, hanging out with her amazing friends, and spending time with her new puppy. Not many people know this about her, but she also plays the piano and the flute and really enjoys playing classical music!

We are so proud to recognize Ms. Farrah as our October National Teacher of the Month!
