Henry Weisser introduced the Teacher of the Month program for December at our Christmas party. Principal Steve Apodaca of Putnam Elementary School described our Teacher of the Month, Eileen Moore, as a compassionate, hard working person who always gave 100% to her students.

Eileen described the difficult and sometimes tragic situations that kindergarten and first grade Putnam students encounter. Putnam is a school where 90% of the students need assistance to pay for lunch. She acknowledged that she took on a hard but nonetheless gratifying job...


At the end of her brief but highly inspiring talk, Stacy Plemmons presented Putnam school with a check from Rotary to replace the out of pocket expenses that such teachers regularly encounter.

In January Kelly Kessler will barge right into Eileen Moore's classroom and, in front of her students, present her with a small trophy from Rotary
