(ABC 6 News) -- Nancy Schollmeier comes to work everyday at St. John the Evangelist at St. Pius X Campus in Rochester with a smile on her face ready to teach pre-schoolers.
"They're just a wonderful bunch to work with the 3, 4, 5-year-olds," she says.
"We look at a lot of things and try to do things that they are interested in," things like their classmate -- Bear -- who shares in the fun activities.
Bear helps decide who the next show and tell student is.
After 11 years with the school, one of Mrs. Schollmeier's favorite things, is when her former students return to visit.
"it's a lot of fun to see them grow, they stop in to say hi and give hugs, and I have a lot of siblings too, so I get to see the younger and the older ones as well," says Schollmeier.
We'll continue to feature Excellent Educators every Wednesday for the rest of the school year. To nominate, complete and submit a nomination form to us.
