Congratulations to Jim Riley on being named our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week!
On Monday morning, June 7th, STAR 101.5 surprised University Cooperative School 5th grade teacher, Mr. Riley, with news that he was being honored as our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week! Mr. Riley was nominated by his student Alina and her mother Linda Larose.
"This year we have been doing outdoor school, which has been full of surprises everyday," said Alina. "Every day no matter the weather, Mr. Riley will say something along the lines of "This is Awesome!" He has worked so hard to make this year so fun even though it has been so different. If we didn't have Mr. Riley as a teacher our days would be boring and laughless. Thank you to Mr. Riley for working so hard this year."
Mr. Riley received a $101.50 check from STAR 101.5 and the Washington State Potato Commission, and a personalized plaque from Trophies2Go. Each student also received a goody bag full of prizes from STAR 101.5 and the Washington State Potato Commission.
STAR 101.5’s “Teacher of the Week” recognizes local, deserving teachers for their commitment to the quality education of children.
