Congratulations to this week's "Teacher of the Week," Enrique Monge del Dujo of Clearview Elementary in Clearwater.

"Professor Enrique" was nominated by a parent of one of his students:

My son has always struggled with reading. Professor Enrique takes time with him daily to practice 1 on 1. My favorite part of the meetings is the end where he had my son repeat “I am muy inteligente, I am very smart.” It makes my son light up ever day and makes my heart so happy. I am grateful for the time he takes with the kids and his patience during this distance learning change. I can’t wait for the kids to get back in the classroom!

Our 'Teacher of the Week' receives a plaque from All-Star Trophy and Awards. and gift certificates from Great Harvest Bread Company, Coyote Moon Grille and St Cloud Floral.  A special thanks to Mathnasium of St. Cloud for also sponsoring our "Teacher of the Week."

Nobody knows what this school year will be like. But one thing we know is that we want to continue to recognize teachers in Central Minnesota, even if it's in an empty classroom. We are ready to adjust to whatever situation presents itself.
