LES salutes ‘Teacher of the Week’ Mary Frees
She had no idea.
When student after student filed into the Loveland Elementary School (LES) intervention specialist’s room right behind Warm 98 – each carrying a special card of congratulations – Mary Frees really had no clue as to what she had done to deserve all the accolades.
Then, a parent took center stage.
As Teresa Schmid read the nomination letter she wrote to Warm 98’s Teacher of the Week competition, emotion had clearly joined Mary Frees in the center of the room. She wrapped her arms around Teresa’s son – her student – Jimmy, and handled the surprise the way she manages her class day in and day out – with grace.
“She is beyond special – she is magical!” said LES Principal Jennifer Forren. “Mary is more than deserving of this award; a huge thank you to Warm 98 for honoring Mary!”
Frees was featured on WLWT’s morning news show as the Teacher of the Week, and on Warm 98 – joint media sponsors of the program.
Congratulations, Mary Frees!
