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. Dolezal:

Mrs. Dolezal is not only a teacher who is continuously working hard to improve student's reading abilities, but also strives to make our students feel welcomed, loved, and cared for each and every day from the moment they enter our doors in the morning to the time they cross the crosswalk after school. Mrs. Dolezal takes her own personal planning time on Monday's and Friday's to stand at the front doors to greet each student and adult, by name, who enters with a smile, "Good Morning", and hug. In addition, Mrs. Dolezal often takes the lead on staff book studies, trauma informed care, and ideas for staff wellness. She is truly a mentor on how to construct a positive learning environment for our kids and staff here at Grantham. No matter the curve balls that are thrown at her, she is able to navigate them and find a way to come out stronger and smarter in the end. She is truly an asset to our team and the teaching profession.
