Nomination Letter:

Myke Zimmerman (Zim), donates extra time to his kids by running the STEM (science technology, engineering, math) program. He also helps coach football, as well as track.
He's the kind of teacher that makes you, want to come and learn. The way he teaches about plants and animals makes it really interesting. The fun and intense experiments that he conducts are informative and entertaining. Plus, there's always Owl pellet day!
Myke also is the president of Pheasants forever, Todd county chapter. He is also the best dad to 4 kids, as well as 7 grandchildren. Everyone would agree that he's a legitimately wonderful guy.

Letter from Principal: 

Myke Zimmerman is a teacher that rarely has discipline issues in his classroom because his students respect him.  They also don't want to risk being removed from the room because then they would miss out on the day's activities.  He pushes the students to learn and be excited about what they are learning.  We are lucky to have him in our district.

Tammy Cebulla

Elementary Principal
