We love surprising teachers that make a difference in the lives of their students by shining the spotlight on them and recognizing their greatness. Making sure they know what they do makes a difference in the lives of others and that it doesn't go unnoticed. We love surprising them with a gift basket full of goodies from Harvest Bread Co., Coyote Moon Grille, Concrete Image Salon, Clutch Take and Bake Pizza and a beautiful award from All-Star Trophy and Awards.This week's teacher of the week is Kim Genereux, Kindergarten Teacher at Mississippi Heights Elementary. We surprised her with this honor while she was teaching in her class this morning. I think she was pretty surprised to see her parents. Her mother was the one that nominated her.

Here is the letter that was submitted by Susan Nelson (Kim's Mother):

I would like to nominate my daughter Kim. She has been the lead teacher at Mississippi Heights Kindergarten for 9 years. I have seen huge changes in the kids after they leave her class. She is VERY dedicated. Putting in extra time away from her family to make sure the kids at school are first. Kim goes the extra mile to teach kids. Fun, entertaining, patient and dependable. All the parents want their kids in her classroom. She is a natural born leader. One word: Excellent!
