March Teacher

Congrats to Marcia O'Duggan, Kindergarten teacher at Lewiston Elementary School, who is our Teacher of the Month!

Marcia is the most compassionate and caring teacher. She is hard working and always putting others before herself. I cannot think of anyone that deserves to be teacher of the month more. She is always there for the kids if it is for teaching purposes or personal reasons and never hesitates to make time to go out of her way to make sure the children have what they need. She has the greatest personality and teaching is what she was meant to do.

February Teacher
Eric Paulson 4th Grade teacher @ Jefferson Elementary in Winona was the Teacher of the Month for February!

Mr. Paulsen is a 4th grade teacher at Jefferson Elementary and is listed as an incredible teacher! He was nominated for teacher of the month because "He is so enthusiastic and interacts with all of his students. He brings the voice out of the shy guys. He deserves the recognition for all he does for his students and school. He is a fantastic role model for all of his students. He has an incredible sense of humor that works well with all the children. My son cannont stop talking about the craziness in learning Mr. Paulsen brings to the classroom!"
December Teacher of the Month
Mrs. Stacey White - CFC Elementary Teacher

Mrs. White is the sweetest, most kind, loving teacher I have ever met. She is battling cancer yet continues to be an amazing woman. She is always there in the morning when I drop off my daughter with a hug for kids. She has a number of older kids that have had her as a teacher in the past that come in the morning for a hug and a kind word. She is always welcoming to these children and especially excited to see my daughter upon my dropping her off in the morning. I feel that my daughter is very blessed to have Mrs. White as a kindergarten teacher. Kindergarten is an important year and by what I can see this wonderful teacher has made a mark on many students over the years. My daughter comes home with lots of knowledge and has learned tons in a short time since kindergarten has started. What a blessing Cochrane Fountain City has to have her as a teacher in their school.
