A STAR 101.5 radio representative surprised Alcott Elementary teacher Jennifer Kuehnle and presented her with its Elementary Teacher of the Week award on Oct. 12.
In a local contest conducted by STAR 101.5, Kuehnle, a kindergarten teacher, was nominated by her student, Emerson Cousens.
Each student received a goody bag full of prizes from Dairy Farmers of Washington, Living Computers: Museum + Labs, KOMO 4 and STAR 101.5. Kuehnle received a personalized plaque from Trophies2Go, a Living Computers: Museum + Labs gift card and a $100 gift card from Daniel’s Broiler.
STAR 101.5’s Elementary Teacher of the Week is a program that allows students to recognize local, deserving teachers for their commitment to the quality education of children.
