Here are 3 teachers we highlighted this week.

Kelsey Etherton was nominated by Tad Murphy. Ms. Etherton teaches math at Newport central catholic High school.


“Last year was her first year teaching. At the beginning of the school year she became homeless.
Her family isn’t close and half of them live across the country. She struggled for months just to find somewhere to sleep.
Only determined to teach these high school kids math. Now with covid. She’s teaching several different classes.
While also being a soccer coach. She has so much going on.
She literally was in 2 car accidents last week. I feel so bad for her to see her to continue to get knocked down.
Yet keep on powering through to teach these kids. I honestly can’t think of anyone more deserving of this”

Kelly Ravenna, nominated by her daughter Katie. Ms. Ravenna teaches 4th & 5th grade E-learning at North Dearborn elementary.


"My mom is an AMAZING teacher. She’s been teaching for almost 30 years and has touched countless lives. 
Numerous parents and former students stop us when we’re out and thank her for being such a 
caring teacher and supporting their kids, helping them grow as students. 
This year she’s taken on the role of being the full time e learning teacher for the 4th and 5th grade.
 It’s been a huge change for her and her confidence as a teacher has taken a huge hit. 
I really want my mom to be considered for this because she is the most amazing teacher and deserves 
it more than most teachers. She goes above and beyond to help her students often putting in work 7 days a week. 
Lately she’s been in her home office from 8am to 8pm. Please help my mom get her confidence back!"

Tonya Flannery was nominated by Tiffany Tinker. Ms. Flannery is a 3rd grade teacher at the Academy of World Languages.


"I am a Paraprofessional at the Academy of World Languages. 
I work with Ms. Flannery in her 3rd grade classroom. 
I have never seen a teacher go above and beyond for her students. 
She makes every child feel special and wanted. 
She is a very helpful resource for other teachers in the building. 
She has been teaching for over 25 years and still continues to provide excellence. 
Please chose my friend Ms. Flannery for this prize! 
I'm certain she will use every penny of it for her classroom and students. 
She is selfless and amazing. She is also a wonderful teaching partner!!"
