He was nominated by M'Lynn Thompson:

Mr. Smith is an AMAZING teacher he is the teacher that you go to if you just need a smile. He works with the choir kids and can see the potential in each kid that walks into his room. He is one of my favorite teachers that I have ever had. He will even say hi and see how you are doing in the hall if he walks past you.

Our 'Teacher of the Week' receives a plaque from All-Star Trophy and Awards. and gift certificates from Great Harvest Bread Company, Coyote Moon Grille and St Cloud Floral.  A special thanks to Mathnasium of St. Cloud for also sponsoring our "Teacher of the Week."

Nobody knows what this school year will be like. But one thing we know is that we want to continue to recognize teachers in Central Minnesota, even if it's in an empty classroom. We are ready to adjust to whatever situation presents itself.
