"Ms. McNaughton is a fantastic teacher that not only taught me science, but also how to ask questions and explore the world... Ms. McNaughton taught us how to think critically, and allowed us to apply those skills to make an impact... I cannot fully describe in words the great teacher that Ms. McNaughton is, and I believe that everyone can benefit in so many ways from her teaching."

"While transitioning to middle school was challenging for me, Ms. McNaughton brought so much excitement and joy to my first year in middle school. From her dedication to create the best learning experiences to the extra time she takes to connect with every student, Ms. McNaughton goes above and beyond to see others succeed. In addition to teaching, Ms. McNaughton is the most compassionate, motivated, and inspiring person I have ever met."

"Ms. McNaughton is one of the most formative teachers I've ever met, and she is so caring and thoughtful. Her never-ending confidence inspired me... and she's just been such a positive influence in my life. "
