Teachers of the Month Winners

Winners receive a $500 gift card, a prize pack and certificate of excellence.

Nominate a teacher

Nancy Niedermier“Nancy Niedermier is a pioneer in STEM teaching in kindergarten. It isn’t easy to plan and execute project-based learning for younger students, but she is able to take a simple idea or question and turn it into a wonderful learning experience. Her students learn by doing things like planning and creating pieces or their own art. While the kids just think this is ‘fun,’ they are learning how to use the engineering design process to solve problems. Nancy exemplifies leadership within the building and district. She provides math intervention expertise on the building RTI team for students struggling in the classroom. She is the expert that all other teachers can go to for ideas on how to bring STEM into their classrooms. Nancy is not only one of the best teachers in our district, but she is also always willing to lend a hand and is fun to be around. I can’t think of a better example of a person to award Teacher of the Month to!” – Cara Will, Administrator

“My son Rocco just loves Ms. Smolinski. She goesAlison Smolinski above and beyond to help him, especially with reading. She comes up with individual ways to help them succeed. She even uses her own money to buy supplies and rewards to help them stay motivated. I gave her a gift card for her birthday, and she used it for the children. She takes time from her lunch break to keep me informed on his progress and game plan for keeping him on track. She is so easy to talk to and work with. I think all teachers are great, and it's got to be hard selecting a winner, but if it were up to me, I'd select Ms. Smolinski!” – Melanie Wood, Parent     

We surprised Alison with the news! Check out the video here. 

Jessica Brown“Jessica Brown is worthy of the recognition as Teacher of the Month because of her exceptional qualities and contributions that distinguish her. She consistently seeks out the latest teaching methods and technologies to ensure that her students receive the best possible education. However, what truly defines her is her unwavering commitment to student-centered practices. Every decision she makes in the classroom is driven by the desire to create a more engaging and enriching experience for her students. Her dedication extends to ensuring the well-being of each student under her care. She integrates regular check-ins into her class routine, which not only fosters a supportive learning environment but also ensures that students feel valued and understood. Beyond her classroom responsibilities, Miss Brown goes above and beyond her role as a teacher by enthusiastically taking on positions of leadership and student service as a club advisor and coach. With colleagues and students, she has created an atmosphere of trust and support that is invaluable to the culture of our building. Miss Brown exemplifies the qualities and commitments that make an excellent teacher!” – Ashely Morrison, Peer Teacher

She has gone above and beyond in assisting this newcomer with tasks like locker management and navigating the hallways, making her transition into our school environment much smoother. Isabella's dedication to helping others is truly commendable, especially considering that she herself was a new student at the beginning of the year.

Moreover, Isabella's excellence extends to the classroom, where she exhibits exceptional diligence and takes immense pride in her work. The quality of her academic achievements is a testament to her commitment and determination. Isabella Beltran is undeniably a role model and an asset to our school community, making her a deserving nominee for this recognition.” – James Emler, Teacher

She had been in the same school system since pre-K but had to transfer school districts at the beginning of this year. It was a big adjustment, but she is thriving!” – Victoria Synder, Parent
