The Teacher of the Month award is designed to recognize an employee that exemplifies our core values, which are compassion, humility, integrity, loyalty and discipline. This month we are pleased to announce that our 2021 April National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Maren of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Four Points.
