Educator Of The Month Nominees

 It's another school year in Northern Wisconsin and another year to salute our wonderful Educators.  Each month throughout the school year we'll honor one educator in Northern Wisconsin who personifies what great teaching is all about. Does your Son or Daughter have a favorite Teacher?   One who goes above and beyond to help out the students?  If so, let us know.  Just tell us below in 75 words or less why that Teacher is deserving of the award. 

You can also mail in your nominee to:
3616 Hwy 47 North
Rhinelander, WI 54501

We'll have one honoree per month and award that Teacher with  a visit to the school and a special plaque honoring them as Educator Of The Month.  Of course this is all made possible by Nicolet College of Rhinelander and the station that cares about education in Northern Wisconsin...100.1 SAM FM.

School / Town: Antigo Middle School/Antigo
Your Name: Masha Anderson

Hello! My name is Mariya Anderson (Masha) and I hope Kevin Kubacki will be choosen to be an honoree. He is just simply amazing, trying to make the kids laugh and helping them learn. He was my homeroom/ER teacher as well. The amazing part was that I got to spend more time with him! A nice thing about him is that he makes sure you learn while you are also having fun. From Three Stooges shirts to Cross Country, this teacher devotes his time and effort to help his students. He is also a Cross Country coach and somehow always finds time to grade papers, teach, and have fun. He is/and will always be my favorite teacher. I hope my school will give him credit for all the amazing things he does. :) Thank you for reading this! Sincerely, Mariya Anderson

Mrs. Hintze is the best, funniest, happiest, craziest, most dedicated teacher EVER!!!!!!!! Every day she has a slide on her computer which either says, Happy Monday, Taco Tuesday, Happy Hump Dayyyyyyyy, Thursday it\'s almost Friday, and It\'s Friday have a great weekend. Another reason I like her is that she always makes a way for us to remember things. These are all the reasons why Mrs. Hintze should be nominated for educator of the month.

My 2nd grade teacher is so nice and kind and thinks up fun things to do to make school better. Standing in line, we do the telephone chain game and she rewards us with jolly ranchers if we make good choices. I really hope she wins this award. She certainly deserves to. Thank you for reading my nomination.

Teacher's Name: Mrs. Deb Treder
School / Town: Zion Rhinelander
Your Name: Bridget Koser

I would like to nominate Mrs. Treder, the 3rd and 4th grade teacher at Zion for the Educator of the Month. Not only is she a dedicated teacher, but she is also in charge of Student Council. Even with all of that going on she always has time to talk, listen, and keeps me challenged.
I’m really emotionally attached to her, and in my opinion she’s pretty much the best teacher ever
