Clarkston, WA - Pacific Empire Radio and Alliance Title and Escrow had the opportunity to present Toby Valdez, from Parkway Elementary, with Teacher of the Month.

Mr. Valdez was awarded a certificate of achievement from Alliance Title and Escrow, a personalized stamp from Printcraft Printing, a $50.00 gift certificate to McDonald’s of the Valley, and a $100 gas card from Nez Perce Express!

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 Mr. Valdez:
I’m nominating this teacher because he will take his time to help his whole class succeed. He’s a fun teacher to have because; he’s not one of those teachers that are all work, work, work. He’ll have fun as long as you do your work. He takes his time to teach the class if they are struggling. He is an amazing coach. He motivates everyone in class and also when he is coaching. He teaches so well that he helped me improve my score from a 196 in archery to a state champion with 271 points! And when you’re having a bad day or not doing to good in any subject he will take his time to talk to you and help you. I have trouble working in a class that is all crazy and loud, and this teacher actually uses discipline but isn’t too harsh. He gets us back to work, making it a better place to learn. He jokes about things to make subjects you may not like fun! This teacher is no doubt the BEST teacher I have ever had.
