Recently a group of Linn-Mar teachers received the 2014 Unsung Hero Award. They were the only teaching team in Iowa to receive the award from more than 1,000 applicants nationwide.
In addition to the kudos, the 2014 Unsung Hero Award carries a grant of $2,000. The grant money will help purchase a number of expensive items for a multisensory room to help students with autism and other severe physical, emotional and behavioral conditions.
Congrats to teachers Kat Power, Sean Smith, Barb Frahm, Janelle Jones and associate Teena Power. Sandee Detweiler was an associate last year when the grant was written, but she resigned during the summer.
