ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
The Breeze radio station and Andy Hall of Seaside Smiles Pediatric Dentistry presented the award for the Treasure Coast Teacher of the Month to Kyle McCleary, a kindergarten teacher at Fairlawn Elementary in Fort Pierce.
The Breeze honors a teacher who has made a difference with an official Teacher of the Month certificate, a formal presentation, a pizza party for his/her class courtesy of the Vanduzer Foundation through Big Apple Pizza and Pasta in Fort Pierce, a class visit to the Children's Museum of the Treasure Coast and a gift basket from Teacher's Pet and More.
"I'm very excited. It's nice to have such supportive parents and students. My class is just the best," said Ms. McCleary.
"I think this is so exciting for one of our teachers to be recognized, especially our teacher, Ms. McCleary, who is truly an outstanding teacher for kindergarten students," said Marcia Cully, Fairlawn's principal.
"They absolutely love her. You would never know from her level of challenge to the students that she's a first- year teacher."
