    Mr. Nuss, what an inspiring and heartwarming article to start my weekend off. Thank you for your dedication and energy put forth every day to instill the knowledge and confidence in these students who are given the privilege of having you for a teacher and mentor, along with the other teachers, students and parents that make this learning experience a very positive factor for those who are struggling with their reading abilities.

    Awesome job Mr. Nuss !! I know my son absolutely loves you as his teacher and just knowing that someone, especially a teacher, has my son excited to go to school is just simply amazing! I can tell that you put all your efforts and energy in your students. Not all teachers care this much about their students, so my hat goes off to you!! Very good job! Keep up your hard work for years to come!
