Current Publishing is re-launching the Teacher of the Month program for students in grades kindergarten through 12th, beginning this month in partnership with Edge Guys Heating and Cooling.
Students in all schools are encouraged to send a 100-word essay nominating their favorite teacher. Essays should be emailed to Teacher@youarecurrent.com by Jan. 30.
If their essay is chosen as a winner, the winning teacher will receive a gift certificate to Edge Guys, and the winning student will win a pizza party for his/her class, sponsored by Papa John’s.
For the Edge Guys, participating in the monthly contest falls in line with what they love to do in the community. Edge Guys has provided heating and cooling comfort to the homes of central Indiana families for more than 50 years, and the owners have raised their children in central Indiana and have seen first-hand the importance of a quality education and how kids blossom with a great teacher.
“I truly feel education is the gateway to success, and the teacher is the first step on the ladder to achieving that success,” Edge Guys owner Jim Williams stated. “Teachers who think outside the box and approach teaching from a number of different angles inspire kids to aim higher than they ever dreamed possible. This award celebrates those teachers and I hope inspires other teachers to find a way to truly make a difference in a child’s life.”
