Sterling Bristow, Math Teacher, ASPIRE Middle School
The person who nominated him wrote: “I have seen Mr. Bristow interact with his students at school and at a couple of field trips. He has the ability to connect with each one of his students in a very personal level, which makes the kids feel important. Not only is Mr. Bristow an excellent math teacher, but he is also interested in his students’ success and well being in middle school. Mr. Bristow is very tolerant with all his students, and he goes out of his way to show them how important they are to him. I have seen him attend school plays and sports events when his students invite him to attend. He listens to his students and provides support in his math class and any other school related activity that is important to his students. My kids are always impressed with Mr. Bristow’s extensive math knowledge and ability to teach at so many levels, so that each student progresses at their own pace. Mr. Bristow is a top notch teacher that is making a very positive impact on his students. Mr. Bristow has definitely inspired my kids to love math!”
