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

Congratulations to Carly Remmington, a teacher at Linn Grove Elementary in Marion! She is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!’ Carly was nominated by Linissa Cooper and this is her entry:

"My daughter started 3-year-old preschool this year. She was a little nervous, but oh so excited! Miss Carly had the most gentle voice and caring personality. When I picked my daughter up after her first day, she had the most beaming, huge smile on her face and could not stop talking about her wonderful first day. Makes me as a protective mother feel so good! She truly educates with her heart, not just her mind!"

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