Educator awarded Teacher of the Month
Special to The Monitor
ATHENS–Each month, Horace Mann Insurance in Athens and KCKL Radio select a teacher in the Cedar Lake Area to be honored as Teacher of the Month.
In November there were nominees from eight school districts.
Tami Dailey from Eustace Primary was selected as the winner and honored on Nov. 1.
She was presented a crystal apple in front of a gym full of students, teachers and family members.
“Ms. Dailey is homegrown right here in Eustace, where she was born and raised and was a Eustace High School graduate,” principal Dianne Shaffer said.
“She has taught in her home community for several years. Tami started teaching in 1996 - this is her 16th year. She received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Texas at Tyler with a specialization in reading. She has taught Reading Recovery, kindergarten and second grade at Eustace Primary School.
“Each year, Mrs. Dailey has made a difference in many children’s lives. She never steps back from challenges with students, always searching for strategies and ways to help in whatever academic or behavior areas of need,“ Shaffer added.
“Her innovative thinking and “never give up” attitude is reflected in her relationships with her students and parents. Mrs. Dailey is an integral part of the Eustace Primary T.E.A.M, leading with enthusiasm, a diligent work ethic and positive attitude.”
Following the presentation, KCKL interviewed several of Dailey’s students who enthusiastically explained how she helps them learn.
The recognition and student endorsements were played on the radio on various dates in November.
