Westbrook Educator Named Teacher of the Month
Makeisha Miller, 2nd grade teacher at Westbrook Elementary, has been named October’s Teacher of the Month for Westside Community Schools.
Miller will be awarded $100 thanks to Chrissy Cameron and Angel Starks with Nebraska Realty. Click here to watch as Mrs. Miller was surprised with the news by Westside administration and Westbrook Teacher Leader Amy Falcone!
Westbrook Speech-Language Pathologist Brandy Klipfel, who nominated Miller, shared the following:
- She is a great educator, supports all ability learners and is a wonderful, collaborative partner to work with. Makeisha recently went to the football game of a student on a Saturday, despite being a busy mom of four daughters, simply because the little guy (who can be a challenge on some days) asked her to come. She includes students in all lessons, including students with pretty significant needs. For a homeschooled student who only comes a half-day a week, she made sure he had a desk and materials so that he feels at home when he comes to Westbrook Makeisha builds relationships with all her students and is a pleasure to work with. She is incredibly dedicated and so deserving of recognition.
Chrissy Cameron, who presented a $100 check to Miller during a Westside Board of Education meeting, also worked with her during her time as an Educational Assistant at Westgate Elementary.
