• Radio Station Honors Sally Micek as ‘Teacher of the Month’
     Teacher of the Month

    Listeners of radio station 95.7 “The Party” learned this week what everyone at Westminster Elementary School already knows, Sally Micek does extraordinary things for her students.

    Mickek was named “Teacher of the Month” by the radio station and was presented with a check for $700 this week from the radio station and Best Car Buys.

    She is also a nominee for the radio station’s teacher of the year award.

    Sally has been a paraprofessional at Westminster Elementary for 20 years and works daily with children with learning disabilities.

    Her nomination letter reads in part:

    “She never tires and is always available to help however she can. She has coordinated Thanksgiving dinners for her students, coat drives and emotional support. Her patience and encouragement is commendable. The students respect her and her peers admire her.”

    Sally’s response to the honor and all the attention was very modest.

    “I would like to say thanks to 95.7 but many teachers also deserve this accolade,” she said. “I also want to say thanks to District 50 for having me as part of the family.”
