Educator of the Month the Beginning

Rick Merrill recognized our educators for their hard work and sacrifices. 

Rick Merrill presented an Educator of the Month award to 68 outstanding educators in Snohomish County. The recipient received a plaque and $500 to help defray miscellaneous expenses for the classroom.

We are surrounded by incredible educators who demonstrate their care and commitment to  each generation of children. They spend countless hours, going above and beyond to help each and every student achieve greatness.  

We know how difficult it is to be an educator.  Most educators spend their own hard earned money to create positive learning environments for our local students. 

How Educator of the Month got started.

“There was a time in my life when I was not doing real well in school, in a lot of things and there was this teacher who did not give up on me. His name was Monte Culver.  I know he helped many, many children.”

Educator of the Month the End

The Educator of the Month that began in the Fall of 2014 will have the final selected winner for  December 2021.  

We are thankful for all the nominations that were submitted.

All nominations were submitted by individuals who had been helped by an educator that went above and beyond. It was very special to us to see how each of these educators had changed the lives of those in their classrooms.

We are thankful for the winners.

To each of our winners, It was a joy to meet you and celebrate the good that you have been doing in our community. We are very thankful to have gotten to know more about each of you.

The Book Brigade has been renamed to the Merrill Law Library.

Classrooms will be selected during the school year to receive brand new books. Each student will receive a book and the classroom will get a set of books to keep and use into the future.
