RAHWAY – A fourth grade teacher at Franklin School in Rahway has been recognized as a “Teacher Who Makes Magic” by a local radio station.
Magic 98.3 in New Brunswick holds a contest each year to find
Teachers Who Make Magic.” Raquel Cardet was honored this year after being nominated by her vice principal, Erin O’Connell, and principal, Arina Robinson.
According to the school officials,“Ms. Cardet is an exceptional educator. She tailors every lesson to her meet the needs of her diverse students. Each morning, she has a ‘do now’ for the students to complete. The sheet is double-sided – one side is easier than the other. Students are able to complete one side and challenge themselves to complete the other.
“Ms. Cardet is a master disciplinarian because she is capable of commanding respect and having a real bond with her students. Her management practices are exemplary. She plays ‘Homework-opoly’ with the students every week. The students move their game pieces around a huge game board that is displayed on a bulletin board.
“Ms. Cardet is creative. Her room is beautifully decorated. In the fall, she was trying to excite her students about writing. She came to school dressed as Frankenstein and asked the students to write about the day ‘he’ came to Franklin School.”
In March, Cardet will be honored at a banquet.
