About Inspiring Excellence
(Contact information for excerpts available on request.)
Sandra Selling is one of the most dedicated teachers I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. ... [She] doesn't just teach, but encourages and inspires, always having the student's best interest in mind. I will always remember her as one of the best teachers I've ever known.
- Justin (student)
Your dedication, love, and care towards me and your other students are evident. Your desire and passion to see us learn, master, and grow in our studies are inspiring. I hope one day to be as inspiring to others as you are to me.
- Julia (student)
You epitomize excellence in teaching and inspire your students toward the highest levels of achievement.
- Terry (parent)
Mrs. Selling’s love of teaching, love of writing, and love of helping her students learn and exceed their own expectations has been the key to the results they have both achieved.
My children are not just better writers as a result of IEW this year with Mrs. Selling, but better students and citizens as a result of her teaching.
- Mike (parent)
You were, and are, a teacher who loves to learn from her students and takes extreme pleasure in seeing them exceed your expectations. A good teacher sees the things other people miss; she mines the pockets of promise that have eluded everyone else. She cares for the character of her students as much, if not more so, than she does for enabling them to excel in their academic pursuits. This is who you are. This is what you did. This is why we will never forget you.
We will continue [to] recommend both Sandra and IEW to all who are looking to have their children be more than just a mediocre student. We are so grateful to her for her enthusiasm and selflessness. My girls have learned a priceless piece of knowledge they will carry on for the rest of their lives.
You have helped to foster her love of writing. She is currently working on a play and a novel and is interested in being an author. I know sometimes as a teacher we don't get to see the outcomes or fruits of our labor, but I wanted to make sure that you are aware of the tremendous impact you have had on her and that she looks forward to your class.
I was lucky enough to have Mrs. Sandra Selling, a fantastic teacher, educator, and encourager as my IEW writing teacher this previous year. She is unlike every other; she goes above and beyond what is expected of a teacher. Spending only five minutes with Mrs. Selling, you can clearly see that teaching is her true passion.
