Patch Picks asked for your favorite teachers in Wellesley this week. Here is what you said:

Wellesley Taxpayer commented: I volte for Ms. Henzel and I hope your child is lucky enough to get her.

Hiker Mom commented: We've loved all the teachers my daughter has had at , especially Ms. Christina Cooney in 1st Grade. She is one-in-a-million on every level. She has a huge fan club in the Sprague community, and for good reason.

Barefoot Liz commented: From what I have seen so far, Ms. Anna Bell is an outstanding teacher. She teaches 3rd grade at Hunnewell School. My son actually looks forward to seeing her (it's the first time he's ever liked a teacher!)

Tobi Marram commented: Jill Heckman at Sprague 4th grade is one of the best teachers ever.

3xMom commented: Taryn Mann at (5th grade) is one of the best teachers we've had for my kids.

anonymous commented: Mr. Jackson. No competition. He teaches sixth grade science, and he is the only teacher who cooperates with the kids, anywhere. He has fun things to do, and knows the kids as well as they know each other. He has all of his sheets online. He is the teacher the students approach and thank. He is the teacher who leads HR 111 to raise hundreds of dollars for kids with cancer by selling glow-in-the-dark wristbands. The teacher who gets a gift from every student, who kids go to when they are confused. Everyone loves him. They try their hardest in his class, and have fun while learning eighth grade level science. He is by far the best teacher in Wellesley. He earns the kids' respect, unlike other teacher who bribe them with candy or just give very little homework.

One more vote for Ms. Heckman at Sprague. She is fantastic! She really pushes the kids to give their best and she is so nurturing too that she brings out the best in them!

After attending "Back to School Night" at Wellesley High, I have to nominate Mr Syd Malaxos who teaches 10th gr. Chemistry. Impressive! Our students are lucky to have him this year.

I agree: Christina Cooney, 1st grade teacher at Sprague all around (she's got such a great sense of humor and she doesn't miss anything, nothing falls through the cracks); also Miss Banthin, 5th grade at Sprague, inspires a love of books and reading. And for middle school teachers I have to agree with the person who sang Mr. Jackson's praises-- a fantastic science teacher.
