Lewiston, Lapwai, Asotin, and Clarkston School Districts are the schools participating in the Teacher of the Month program.  If you would like to nominate a teacher from one of these school districts, a nomination form can be filled out on DailyFly.com. One teacher will be chosen each month based on nomination letters received through Dailyfly.com

Here is the letter of nomination that was received for Mrs. Koenig:

Here we have one of the rare breed of teachers concerned not only with their student's progress in her classroom, but also with their well being as citizens of our community as well. Teachers like this one produce students who embrace learning, are not afraid to state their point of view, and are willing to help others in need, when necessary. Mrs Koenig goes out of her way to communicate with parents, so everyone can be on the same page, and will reach out to students who are on the fringes of her class to make sure they feel included in all aspects of their academic life. She has gone out of her way to personally reach out and make welcome each and every student she has had in her classroom. In addition, she has made her classroom into a learning friendly environment that welcomes the participation of every student. Mrs. Koenig’s room is warm and welcoming while encouraging students to be hands on and experience everything they can to the fullest. Amanda is a teacher who has been called to the profession not by fate, but by her giving and caring attitude towards her students. She is truly a treasure.
