Zaremba named Benton’s 18-19 Teacher of the Year
The Benton School District has named a Benton Junior High School teacher as its teacher of the year.
“We are very excited to present you teachers of the year for our district,” said Assistant Superintendent Karla Neathery during a recent meeting of the Benton School Board. “We have one from each school. First, we want to thank these ladies. They have done so great with all of our kids and we appreciate all you do for our students.”
Monica Zaremba was chosen as the district teacher of the year for
the 2018-19 school year. She teaches ninth-grade algebra, as well as overseeing the National Honor Society.
“She is a great teacher,” Neathery said. “She is great with kids …every time we visit her classroom, her kids are engaged and learning.”
Neathery said choosing the overall district teacher of the year was a hard decision because all of the candidates were so good.
One teacher from each campus was chosen as teacher of the year and the overall teacher of the year was chosen from those honorees.
