The e-mail nominating Melanie Wagner to be the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month applauds... her for making her third grade class a fun and caring place and offering a gentle hand to a group of students leaning to be more independent.

Mrs. Wagner is a third grade teacher at the Dawes Avenue School in Somers Point and the nomination was from her student Davis Austin.

Davis is now in the running for the $2000 scholarship Lite Rock will give to one of the students who nominates a deserving South Jersey teacher this school year.

Lite Rock will visit Mrs. Wagner’s class with a Lite Rock pizza party .  Mrs. Wagner wins a membership to Island Gym and Fitness for her selection as the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month.

Lite Rock Teacher of the Month nominations should only be about 100 words in length and are a great way of recognizing teaching excellence,  so consider entering in a nomination if you know of a teacher who is making a real difference in your child’s life.
