Congratulations to Ms. Michelle Dumag on being named our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week!

On Wednesday morning, April 14th, STAR 101.5 surprised Woodside Elementary School 5th grade teacher, Ms. Dumag, during her virtual classroom time with news that she was being honored as our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week! Ms. Dumag was nominated by her student Xander Davis and his mom Sheena.

"Ms Dumag has shown pure energy and excitement for teaching, online, and now in person. She took the plunge last week and welcomed 5th grade students back into the classroom. Although not ideal, my son still really enjoyed class online this year, and has been challenged in more ways than ever," said Xander's mom, Sheena.

When STAR 101.5 asked Ms. Dumag what she likes best about teaching she said, “The relationship with the kiddos. They leave my classroom at the end of the year but [the relationship] is for life.”

Ms. Dumag 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.
