Because of Mr. Terupt

Because of Mr. Terupt is nominated for the intermediate Golden Sower Award.  The story documents the school year of a fifth grade class and the profound impact that their teacher, Mr. Terupt, has on their lives.  As with all classes, Mr. Terupt’s class is full of different personalities, students with different challenges, and, of course, different experiences with and expectations of school.  It is not until Mr. Terupt is gone that the students begin to understand how much they learned from their teacher.  

Readers will relate to different students and situations - the class clown, the sensitive, quiet student, the smart mathematically gifted student, and how each person brings their own life experiences into school
