KHQ Television and Eastern Washington University have been partners in honoring excellence among teachers for over 18 years. The Teacher of the Month program is simple in design: students write letters telling why their teacher is outstanding. Students can nominate his or her favorite teacher simply by writing a letter and mailing it to:
Teacher of the Month
Department of Education E.W.U.
312 Williamson Hall
Cheney, WA 99004
From these heartfelt messages, one teacher is selected each month to be recognized for his/her contribution to the education of children. Over 175 educators from throughout the Inland Northwest have been dubbed the EWU/KHQ Teacher of the Month.
