2016-09 -_Mix945_Teacher_Of_The_Month_-_Jenna_OBrienMONTICELLO, IL (September 30, 2016) — We are pleased to announce that our very own art and music teacher, Mrs. Jenna O’Brien has been awarded the Teacher of the Month!  Every month, an exemplary teacher from Central Illinois is chosen from heartwarming nominations, like the one about Mrs. O’Brien.  This is part of the “give back to the community” focus Mix 94.5 and their committee is spearheading to acknowledge the powerful work our educators provide each and every day in our region.  

“Teachers like Mrs. O’Brien are leading the way to a brighter future and we are honored to be able to highlight her contributions”, said Operations Manager of Mix 94.5, Jonathan Drake.

Mrs. O’Brien was nominated by Anne Newman [Award/Nomination Letter], grandparent to one of her students, for helping her granddaughter “forget her fears and really come to life again. She encourages her students to try new things and trust their artistic instincts.”  

Principal Vogt said, “We had so much fun surprising her, there was an impressive group of people with gifts, balloons, a custom Teacher of the Month award.  Plus, one of our biggest education supporters, Rick Ridings, of Rick Ridings Ford in Monticello, came with a fun oversized check and a ton of gratitude for all Mrs. O’Brien has accomplished.”  

As an active community member, Rick has always supported education, but did not even hesitate when asked to support the Mix 94.5 Teacher of the Month program the entire year.  If you would like to nominate an educator you know, please go to and select teacher of the month to fill out the nomination form.

Dyslexia AwardMONTICELLO (Journal-Republican) — Monticello’s Lincoln and White Heath Elementary schools have received an award for their dyslexia screening and intervention program that was put into effect in 2012. Intervention teacher Jenna Branch and special education instructor Mary Rhodes received training on how to identify those with dyslexia, and since 2012 have screened about 110 incoming elementary students per year.

The efforts have been recognized by Everyone Reading Illinois, which awarded the schools with the 2015 “It Takes a Village” award.

“The award is nice, but I think mainly I see that we’re helping kids, and bottom line that is what is most important to me,” said Rhodes, who along with Branch will be a presenter at the ERI fall conference, “Dynamics of Dyslexia” on Oct. 7 in Naperville.

Viva Las Sages

On November 4th, the historic mansion of Robert Allerton will be transformed into a Las Vegas style casino for one night only from 7:00pm-11:00pm. Food, drink, raffles, and auctions will accompany our many gaming tables. Unlike Vegas, the house doesn’t always win because all proceeds will go to support the MAEF and its mission to support, enrich, and enhance the educational opportunities and initiatives in Monticello CUSD #25.  A $50 dollar ticket gets you entry into the event, fun money for gambling, and complimentary appetizers; additional fun money, raffles, and live/silent auction items will also be available.  This is the main fundraiser for the Monticello Schools Education Foundation!

Check out "Viva Las Sages 2016" for tickets.
