Our honoree this week is Amber Nietert, a first-grade teacher in the Springville Community School District. Amber was nominated by Tammy Mysak. Her entry said:

"I take my dog Phantom to Mrs. Nietert's class once a month so her first graders can read to him. Mrs. Nietert is the first one in the Springville school to have a reading therapy dog visit her class. Her class is always well behaved and very eager to read to Phantom."

For being such a wonderful teacher, Amber will be receiving gift cards to Half Price Books in Cedar Rapids and Wild Hogs Saloon & Eatery in Walford.

Do you know a fantastic educator here in Eastern Iowa? Nominate them to be our next KHAK 'Teacher of the Week' HERE! Nominees are eligible to win through May of 2020.
