It takes a special person to be a teacher. It's a job requiring a tremendous amount of patience, compassion, and someone who truly loves working with children and wants to help them grow and learn to be the best people they can be. Someone who will be their students' biggest cheerleader and someone who's not afraid to put those same students back on the right path when they veer from it. As someone who's been married to a teacher for over 20 years, I've seen first-hand that the workday doesn't end when the final bell rings. There are papers to grade and lesson plans to be made that often find them working well past the end of the school day and on weekends. It's a tough job and one that often goes under-appreciated, which is why we're giving you the chance to show some love to your child's teacher by nominating them to be our Teacher of the Month.

We've teamed up with Liberty Federal Credit Union for the 2023-2024 school year to show one teacher in the Tri-State each month that the work they're putting in for their students isn't going unnoticed. To nominate your child's teacher, simply fill out the form below with your name and contact information, along with the name of your child's teacher, the school they teach at, and a brief reason for what makes them special and why they deserve the recognition.

At the end of each month, we'll select one entry as our Teacher of the Month and hook them up with a bouquet of flowers from Zeidler's, along with a $50 gift card to the Copper House restaurant on Franklin Street personally delivered by myself, Melissa, and Travis Sams as a small token of your appreciation.
