Santa says to vote for December's Teacher of the Month and you know he's always watching. Give your teacher the ultimate Christmas present and vote now.

He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake, he knows if you've voted for Teacher of the Month or not, so vote now for goodness sake. That's my take on Teacher of the Month -- the Christmas edition.

Every month we hook up our Teacher of the Month by interrupting their class and surprising them with a whole bunch of prizes. Since it is December, this would be the ultimate Christmas present to your teacher and -- it's free. Here's what your teacher will win:

  • $50 gift card to Village Inn
  • $50 Visa gift card from Farmers Insurance the Josh DeWitt Agency
  • $20 Starbucks Gift Card and an insulated tumbler from Carville's Automart
  • 1-hour massage from Rimrock Wellness
  • Fresh fruit bouquet from Willy's Wild Carvings
  • Skating party for 30 at Spin City with a pizza party from the Garlic Knot

Our Teacher of the Month for November was so thankful and appreciative, Bryan Bell at West Middle School sent a note about it, stating that ever since he won:

I have been contacted by over 270 of my former students, many going back 26 years to my first year, that now are grown with children of their own.  And in some cases, I have been their children's' teacher.  I cannot tell you how many of these reunions have brought tears to my eyes and truly opened them in a new way to the impact that teachers make, so with most sincere gratitude, thank you once again!

Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, December 31 so make sure you vote before then. Remember -- Santa is watching.
