Ms. Yingling: Made of Awesome


Since getting involved in this comment challenge, I've been introduced to some awesome bloggers but my favorite so far is Ms. Yingling from Westerville, Ohio (near my old stomping grounds).  Her students love her!  That is quite an accomplishment in a middle school, let me tell you.  And check out this amazing story!  She's made of awesome.  A true ninja.  I want to be just like her when I grow up, except for maybe the all the plaid.  And the singing--I'm not much of a singer.  Ok, I'll never be that awesome, but she's inspiring, no?  That reading all the fiction in the entire library thing is just cool.  She's been reading every single book in the fiction section since starting there.  She is now up to the "Ts".  Rock on, Ms. Yingling.

I think I would love to get to know her! Her love for what she does shines through what her students think. She sounds fun, entertaining, and wonderfully interesting. Wish I could go to school there! Ninee

Great story and great name! I used to work in the Resource Room at a Middle School- scary stuff sometimes. I know why she wears plaid pants and wild thrift-store jewelry. You have to have a good sense of humor!

Wow! I had no idea I was so awesome. Here I thought I was just getting dressed, going to work, and trying to keep pedaling so I didn't fall over. This made my day, Ninja Teacher. Not only that, but I got to show my own three children how awesome other people think I am, although they'll probably still whine at me that I'm mean. Thanks again!
