Every week we team up with Menard's to honor another awesome teacher in the local area with our ‘Teacher of the Week’ award!

Matt Heckert

Congratulations to Amrika Stumpf, a teacher at Highland Middle School in Riverside! She is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!’ Amrika was nominated by Matt Heckert and this is his entry:

"As a second-year teacher, Ms. Stumpf has found great ways to make learning fun for her students. Incorporating fun activities like break-out boxes and utilizing current popular media to engage the students, she excels at keeping her students engaged! She also teaches TAG K-12 in the Highland School District."

For being an amazing teacher, Amrika will be receiving gift cards from Wild Hogs in Walford, Half-Price Books, and Kathy’s Pies!
