As the school year winds down, a student at Johnson County Elementary says she will always remember fourth grade math teacher Liz Ridgeway.

Jordan Lawrence says, "She makes learning easier like when we do 'pals.' That's where we learn strategies to make math easier."

Her students say she teaches them important lessons and is always there to help.

Chapman Phillips says, "She helps you understand everything. She ain't gonna leave you hanging. She won't say 'you don't need help,' she will go over and help you."

Ridgeway loves giving her students the tools to solve problems in the classroom and in life.

She says, "It'd just a really great feeling when you see that lightbulb go off and they get it, they've mastered it. You just hope you've taught them well enough so it stays with them."

She wants to see all of her students soar to new heights and come out on top.
