Teacher of the Month

Our Newest Winner

Congratulations to Our Newest Teacher of the Month!

We all have memories of a favorite teacher; someone who took the time to help us succeed, who was willing to answer our every question, who challenged us to see things from a different perspective, who stayed after school to read every last essay, or who believed in us even when we did not believe in ourselves. When a teacher gives of him- or herself, their efforts and hard work should be recognized. Congratulations to all recipients and many thanks to their students, KHQ and our sponsor, STCU!

The February 2020 Teacher of the Month is Bambi Howe of Madison Elementary School.

About the Program

The Teacher of the Month Program is a collaboration between Eastern Washington University’s Education Department, KHQ Local News, and Spokane Teachers Credit Union to recognize local teachers for their excellence. Each month one teacher is selected and representatives of the Education Department, KHQ, and STCU will visit the winning teacher’s school to celebrate.

Nominations are accepted from a student, a group of students, or parents of students with special needs, though we do prefer letters from the student directly whenever possible. Please write a letter and send it directly to the EWU Education Department for consideration.

Any teacher in an elementary, middle or high school in Washington State or North Idaho is eligible.

Nominating your teacher is easy! Please write a letter telling us what makes your teacher special and mail the letter to:

Teacher of the Month
Department of Education
Eastern Washington University
312 Williamson Hall
Cheney, WA 99004

For our young writers, please ask an adult for help mailing your letter.
