As part of its commitment to education, and to celebrate teachers in the Renton School District, each month Rotary Club of Renton selects a few teachers as Teacher of the Month.
As part of the recognition, teachers attend Rotary’s Teacher of the Month recognition luncheon held at the Maplewood Golf Course. Each teacher is introduced, makes a brief comment about the school and classroom, and receives $250 to be used for classroom supplies or instructional materials.
December Teachers of the Month are:
