The e-mail nominating Erin Porter to be the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month tells of one of her students leaving class and telling his mother "I love math"!  That story was enough to that Mrs. Porter is doing someething right in the classroom.

Porter is a third grade teacher at the Weymouth Township School and the nomination was from her student Brian Ruga's mother, Donnel.

Brian 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. Porter's class with a pizza party courtesy of Jack’s Pizza & Steaks in Somers Point and Pleasantville.  Erin Porter also wins a $100 gift certificate courtesy of South Jersey Gas and  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.
