Erika Repko, an ES Kindergarten teacher at Kiona-Benton, is teacher of the month for June! She wins $100 to the Teacher’s World store and a 60-minute massage from Myers Therapeutic Massage.

She was nominated by Jordan Sillito. Here's the submission:

Mrs. Repko has been teaching at Ki-Be for twenty years in kindergarten and starts each year with the enthusiasm of a new teacher, combined with the wisdom of a tenured one. Other teachers come to Mrs Repko for help and advice. Mrs Repko also connects with the parents of her students, engaging whole families in the education of our next generation. She gives her whole heart to the kids, making sure they have every possible chance at success, and takes extra time to understand the individual needs of all. Each day she is looking for a new way to brighten the day for every student and share a new idea."
