NHL Future Goals Teacher of the Month

Congratulations to Ms. Nail from Daniel Morgan Middle School


What grade/subject do you teach and how long have you been teaching?  

I teach Science at Daniel Morgan Middle School and have taught here for three years 

How are you using Hockey Scholar in your classroom? 

We use Hockey Scholars during Elective Enrichment time in the mornings! My students enjoy it, and four or five have already completed the entire program  

What was your students' reaction to the course? Did they enjoying  learning STEM with the Caps? 

My students really liked the course a lot! It was a very good mix of challenge and games. They also really liked that it was based on the Caps because it was something familiar to them. 

Who is your favorite Capitals player? 

My personal favorite would probably be Braden Holtby…. Or Ovechkin   

Who in your life inspired you to become a teacher? 

My middle school science teacher and my high school English teachers inspired me to become a teacher myself.

What is your favorite hockey movie? 

Although there are a few good ones, the Mighty Ducks was always my favorite 

Would you be a defenseman, forward, or a goalie?  

I would want to be a forward… I am too chicken to be a goalie :)
