Congratulations to Katie Lawrence on being named our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week!

On Thursday morning, May 13th, STAR 101.5 surprised Greenwood Elementary School kindergarten grade teacher, Ms. Lawrence, with news that she was being honored as our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week! Ms. Lawrence was nominated by her student Wyatt and his father Steve Simpson.

"In the wake of the COVID year, Ms. Lawrence was not only new to our school but also to a kindergarten classroom," said Steve. "She has been nothing short of a model of how to develop relationships with these young learners as a teacher, counselor, and friend. Her ability to communicate clearly and effectively with both students and teachers is without question some of the best we have experienced, and her patience with the kids, their young distracted minds, and all the technology challenges over the year is nothing sort of a miracle."

Ms. Lawrence 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.
