Congratulations to Mrs.Cindy O'Kane , the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month for December.

Mrs. O'Kane, who teaches public speaking and media at Belhaven Middle School in Linwood, was nominated her student Lexi Jacobs. Lexi thinks of Cindy O'Kane as a teacher, mentor and friend.

What a fun time I had visiting with Mrs. O'Kane and her students, eating pizza and visiting the studio of Belhaven's Renaissance TV, where the school's daily announcements are recorded. Thanks to all at Belhaven Middle School for having me!

You can see highlights from my visit to Mrs O'Kane's class attached to this post below...

Mrs.O'Kane wins a year membership to Island Gym, a fresh fruit flower arrangement from B.F. Mazzeo in Northfield and a Lite Rock pizza party for her class from Capri Pizza in Northfield, and a $50 gift card to Hamilton Mall.

For submitting the nomination, Lexi Jacobs is now qualified for a $2000 scholarship from Lite Rock.

Do you know of an excellent South Jersey teacher we should consider as the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month?

Teacher of the Month nominations need only be about 100 words in length and are a great way of recognizing excellence for a teacher who is making a real difference in your child’s life.
