Vyve Broadband is excited to announce Lori Farris, 6th through 8th Grade Math teacher at Grove Elementary School, as the Shawnee April 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. Farris was chosen by Shawnee residents through an online voting process.

“Whether they spent extra time to help a student understand a concept or were a listening ear to a student who needed to talk, teachers deserve to be celebrated," says Diane Quennoz, Vyve SVP, Marketing and Customer Experience. “As the end of the school year draws near, we feel it’s important to acknowledge and thank those teachers who go the extra mile to help their students succeed inside and outside the classroom.”

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.
