Graniterock Teams with KWAV 96.9 FM to Honor Teacher of the Month

Lakeview Middle School teacher Judy Woods was awarded Teacher of the Month during a surprise presentation on April 23, 2014. Graniterock teamed up with KWAV 96.9 FM to select a teacher who goes above and beyond the ordinary. Ms. Woods is an eighth-grade bilingual language arts teacher who encourages reading and a love of books. She runs Lakeview's student leadership program and escorts the students on field trips to Washington, D.C. As a bilingual teacher, Ms. Woods will often visit the home of students when necessary to reach their parents. Graniterock's Chief Story Teller Rose Ann Woolpert and KWAV Morning Show host Barry Brown presented the award to Ms. Woods in front of her students. Woods was nominated by her sister Katie with this heartfelt entry:

"Like every other teacher, Judy Woods is a hard worker. But to say that she is an over-achiever is an understatement. When I say an over-achiever about a teacher is probably one of the greatest gifts a parent could ask for. Ms Woods' students have excellent test scores and really enjoy her work. She has a really strong policy about "no child left behind." Even the students that appear to be gang affiliated or really tough. She does not back down and expects each kid to give 100% if not more to their studies."

Graniterock is proud to partner with KWAV 96.9 as they search for the best teachers on the Central Coast each month. Let KWAV know who you think should be the Teacher of the Month by visiting Winning teachers receive a plaque to display in their classroom along with a VISA Card.
