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 Pam Cimenski, Preschool teacher at Royalton Elementary. We surprised her with this honor while she was teaching in her class this morning.

Here is the letter that was submitted by Tamela Stoeckel:

Pam was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and has worked through all her surgeries, double mastectomy chemo, radiation, to keep her health coverage. She has another surgery in two weeks and still continues to teach.

She loves to watch her kids grow. She also enjoys teaching color games ,sign language, arts, and crafts. She also had fun planning  the Halloween party.  Ms. Pam makes learning fun.

Principal Phil Gurbada added:

The parents of the students love her. She is very dedicated and giving. He also appreciates all she has done for Royalton Elementary School.

Thank you Pam Cimenski for making a difference in the children's lives you teach and others around you.
