Vyve Broadband is excited to announce Summer Yort, second grade teacher at Jefferson Elementary School, as the Shawnee March Teacher of the Month. The monthly program honors outstanding teachers in the communities Vyve serves.

The Vyve Teacher of the Month program recognizes teachers who have gone above expectations to create an exceptional learning environment for their students. Their mentorship and leadership are felt throughout their communities and are essential in the success of each student that comes through their classroom. Yort was chosen by Shawnee residents through an online voting process.

"Vyve understands the type of impact great teachers have on students," says Diane Quennoz, Vyve SVP, Marketing and Customer Experience. "Because of teachers who go the extra mile for their students, our communities are a better place. Congratulations to all teachers honored this month. Vyve supports you and appreciates your efforts to make learning fun, challenging and rewarding for all students.”

Vyve will continue the Teacher of the Month program through the end of the school year and invites the community to visit www.vyvebroadband.com/teacher or www.facebook.com/vyvebroadband to vote for who should be the next teacher of the month. Teachers from any public school in Shawnee are eligible, Pre-K through High School. They will receive a Vyve Golden Apple trophy and entered to win an iPad for their classroom.
