One way they go above and beyond: Mrs. Keith has helped me with the Take A Stand club that you may have heard of. The take a stand club is a club I had imagined in my head.I went to the Principal and He had said he would send out an email to the teachers. Mrs.Keiths was the only one to say she would give it a try. Since then we have been on WQAD, Galesburg Register Mail (two times), And she nominated me for the youth extra effort award where i went and received an award from the mayor. My one little thing in my head grew huge for me because she was there to help.

Example of how this teacher has helped: Mrs.Keith is always there for me when i need her. even small little thing sthat are really nothing she helps me. About a year ago i was going through alot. Alot of self hate and many more things. I could always trust Mrs.Keith to talk to. She made me happy and made me feel like everything was okay.

What sets this teacher apart: Mrs.Keith is one amazing teacher. she helped kids with with many more things such as education, home problems and sometimes problems students are facing on the inside. Mrs.Keith was wonderful from the day i met her. She was very kind and willing to listen to what i had to say about the situation. She has helped me through thick and thin and this goes for many others as well. Mrs.Keith has been such an amazing human being and has impacted many lives with just her kind words. She knows when to say just the right thing in whatever situation.

As KFM’s Teacher of the Month, Mary receives the Big Red Apple Award, a $100 gift card, and balloons. Honoring teachers who make a difference with the Big Red Apple Award from Galesburg Nissan, Tompkins State Bank, Lackey Monuments, Casey’s Party Creations and 105.3 KFM.
