EFCO, a Pella company, sponsors the Teacher of the Month program in partnership with The Monett Times. The program was estabished to recognize outstanding local teachers and reward them. Each month, the winning teacher receives a recognition plaque and a check from EFCO in the amount of $250 to be used for classroom supplies. The teacher is also featured in the newspaper.
Any public or private school teacher in Monett, Purdy, Verona, Pierce City or Freistatt is eligible for the award.
