School may look a little different this year. Some teachers and students are in classrooms and some are virtual but we want to honor those teachers making a difference.
Teachers take ordinary students and shape them into extraordinary human beings.
So, each month, Johnny B, Jessie Jordan or Eric Johnson will show teachers just how special they are by awarding them a $100 gift card and a special plaque from Crown Trophy!
If you know a teacher that epitomizes the title of TEACHER OF THE MONTH, nominate them below!
Keri Ketchmark – Maple Lane Elementary – February 2021 Teacher of the Month
Kristen Burris – Polytech High School – December 2020 Teacher of the Month
Ms. Miller of Sanford School – November 2020 Teacher of the Month
Ms. Wilt of Brandywine High School – October 2020 Teacher of the Month
