MONTICELLO, 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 mix945.com and select teacher of the month to fill out the nomination form.
School Supply Lists can be found here for Kindergarten and 1st grade students
Small Wonders students do not have a supply list, however, we do ask that our preschool students bring a backpack each day and a set of extra clothes to leave at school. Parents of Small Wonders students will receive a "Wish List" of items from the classroom teachers if they would like to make a donation to the classroom from that list.
