Homer Brink's Melissa McGuire is the Jan. META /Liberty Mutual Teacher of the Month
Homer Brink literacy teacher Melissa McGuire provides our youngest Spartans with the resources they need to be super readers! She is a valuable resource for teachers, and a caring role model for all who know her. For that reason and more, McGuire is the January META/Liberty Mutual Insurance Teacher of the Month.
“She goes above and beyond to gather us resources, help us organize and get all our reader’s workshop and writer’s workshop ready every few weeks, and even takes time to mentor/go into new teacher’s classrooms to help model lessons,” said first grade teacher Melissa Hotchkiss who nominated McGuire for the honor.
“She is so sweet to the children and is always sharing amazing reachable ideas for all of us to do” Hotchkiss added.
Each month Liberty Mutual honors excellence in teaching within our district with the Teacher of the Month award. The award, sponsored by the Maine-Endwell Teachers Association, is given to a staff member who demonstrates the following leadership qualities: professionalism and excellence in and out of the classroom; commitment to the well-being of students; high ethical standards; and civic and charitable stewardship. Award winners will be nominated by their peers.
