We love surprising wonderful teachers every week! Today we stopped by Oak Ridge Elementary School in Sartell to honor Kindergarten Teacher, Rebecca Monahan as our "Teacher of the Week."

Rebecca was nominated by Allison Rodriguez and her daughter Elena, who is a student in Rebecca's classroom!  Here's what Allison had to say about Rebecca:

Mrs.Monahan goes above and beyond for her students. She makes learning fun. My daughter is one of the youngest in her class and Mrs. Monahan takes the time to make sure she is understanding the lessons. She has gone out of her way to make personalized learning plans with our family which helps tremendously and she keeps us updated on any concerns. When I ask my daughter about her day she always has a smile on her face and tells me about the different activities she was able to participate in. My child and myself are so proud of the amount of social and educational growth she has achieved in such a short time. My child is excited to show me the work she completed that day at school with her teacher and friends. My child loves to go to class and looks forward to seeing her favorite teacher Mrs. Monahan who makes her day fun! We have had special circumstances this year and Mrs. Monahan has gone above and beyond to make sure my child is happy, safe, and thriving at school.
