December 2015 Teacher of the Month: Tim Johnson

105.3 KFM along with Galesburg Nissan, Tompkins State Bank, Lacky Monuments and Casey’s Party Creations congratulate Tim Johnson, December’s KFM Teacher of the Month. Tim was nominated by one of his students, Sam Cypert. And this is what she had to say about her teacher:

One way they go above and beyond: I struggle in chemistry, but Mr. Johnson is willing to give up his planning period every day to give me extra help and to reteach a lesson that I didn’t get. The first term that I had him I wasn’t sure if I was going to pass the class, but by going in and spending extra time with him, I passed the class with a B! He never gets frustrated with me or upset that I don’t get something!

Example of how this teacher has helped: Mr. Johnson is not only great in an academic sense, but is also the most entertaining teacher I’ve had. He’s always telling a cheesy science joke or making us all laugh! His class would normally be unbearable, but his positive attitude and contagious laugh make it enjoyable!

What sets this teacher apart: Mr. Johnson is incredibly friendly. He is willing to do whatever it takes to help a student do their absolute best by going above and beyond and using his free time to help anyone and everyone. He is always able to make a class fun and his sense of humor brightens my day.

As KFM’s Teacher of the Month, Tim 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, Lacky Monuments, Casey’s Party Creations and 105.3 KFM.
