Katie Zezza who's a first grade teacher at Brookfield's Center Elementary School is our December 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.

Katie was nominated by her daughter, who had some nice things to say about her:

I would like to nominate my mother as teacher of the month because she is the most passionate teacher I know. Through this tragic pandemic, she has been nothing but positive and kind to each one of her students. She continues to put in hundreds of extra hours into making sure her students are well educated and comfortable 24/7. She has won multiple awards for teacher of the year at her school but it would be beyond special to her if she won the Kicks 105.5 contest, especially around the holidays.

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.
