2019 Teacher of the Year

Eleven years ago we wanted to come up with a way to recognize and reward teachers within our listening area.  After some discussion, this is how the annual Teacher of The Year promotion began on MORE 104.9.

Every year in May we ask listeners to send us nominations of local teachers.  We carefully read through every nomination – everyone is considered.  It is overwhelming the amount of nominations we receive and to read first-hand how awesome these teachers are!

This year’s recipient is a Transitional-Kindergarten Teacher at Okoboji Elementary.  Mrs. Kim Lux has done an outstanding job in her classroom and is known to treat every single one of her students as if they’re her own child.  She makes each student feel special.  The parents of her students love her equally as much as her the students.  One afternoon we showed up at the school to surprise her in front of everyone!  She had no idea it was happening.  We invited her entire family to be there as we made the announcement.  The entire gymnasium was overcome with lots of joy and happiness!

A special thanks to our sponsor, The Farmers Bank of Spencer.  They have been our partners in this promotion from the beginning.  Mrs. Lux was presented a Teacher of The Year plaque and a $250 gift card!  None of this would be possible without the support of Farmers Bank, your support is so much appreciated.

 Congratulations Mrs. Lux!!  Thank you for everything you do in the classroom!
