Congratulations to Kelly Filoon, the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month for March.

Ms.Filoon, who teaches 4th and 5th Special Ed reading at Hess School in Mays landing, welcomed me to her class on Thursday for a Lite Rock Pizza Party to celebrate her selection as the Teacher of the Month.

We had a fun visit with her class, who enjoyed their pizza and recorded a congratulatory message for Ms.Faloon which you can hear attached to this post .

Kelly Filoon’s nominating student, Samantha Hassa is now in the running for a $2000 scholarship Lite Rock will give to one of the students who nominates a deserving South Jersey teacher this school year.

Thanks to Capri Pizza and Grille in Northfield for the delicious pizza for our pizza party!

For being selected as the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month, Ms.Filoon wins a membership to Island Gym and Fitness.

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.
