Christine Lombardi is a teacher at Nature's Nursery at Green Chimney's in Brewster, and she's our September Teacher of the Month.

It's more challenging now than ever for teachers, as they try and educate their students through both in person and online classes.

Christine was nominated by her friend Trisha Johnson who had this to say about her work ethic, "Christine is always adapting and excited to work with her students. I have had the pleasure of working with kids in her class throughout the last 6 years and she is always welcoming and encouraging".

If you know a teacher who goes above and beyond, you can nominate them by just filling out the simple entry form below.

Each month, we'll select a different teacher and honor them with a fantastic meal at Barbarie's Black Angus Grill in Danbury. Also, every teacher of the month chosen will get an official KICKS 105.5 Teacher of the Month certificate to commemorate the honor.

So, nominate a teacher in your town who does so much in shaping our kids lives, then be listening on the last Wednesday of each month just before 10 AM, that's when Mr. Morning Bill Trotta will make the announcement.
