Valley's Macaroni Kid newsletter honors Teachers of the Month

Starting in September, local teachers will be getting a little more recognition for all their hard work.  Macaroni Kid is teaming up with Bridget Franklin, a real estate agent from The Cascade Team, the Flat Iron Grill in Issaquah, and other sponsors to bring the community the second year of “Teacher of the Month” promotion.

“The first year of the program was a huge success, with about 35 teachers being nominated from Issaquah and Snoqualmie Valley schools,” said Diana Reul-Shapiro, co-publisher and editor of Macaroni Kid Snoqualmie Valley-Issaquah. “Every teacher that won the monthly award last school year said the honor was special, the prizes were generous, but that teaching is their passion and they couldn’t imagine doing anything else!”

This school year Macaroni Kid will spotlight teachers from the Issaquah and Snoqualmie Valley school districts, as well as local preschools and daycare centers.  “If your child has a teacher that they look up to, we hope you will nominate them,” said Reul-Shapiro.
