Whether you're on your way to the library or stopping by City Hall, chances are you're driving by St. John Vianney School, located in the heart of Brookfield. This blog will provide insight into life and education at SJV, a 4K-8 educational anchor in Brookfield since 1957.
St. John Vianney teacher Jill Fischer was recently honored with the Herb Kohl Educational Fellowship Award . These fellowships, in the amount of $1000, are awarded each year to one hundred Wisconsin teachers. Each fellow's school (so St. John Vianney) also receives a $1,000 grant. Teachers are chosen for their superior ability to inspire a love of learning in their students and ability to motivate others, and for their leadership and service within and outside the classroom.
Some of you may recall that Mrs. Fischer was also awarded the B93 Teacher of the Month last February. This was a real exciting time for the 4th grades students over at St. John Vianney. Air personality Julie Davidson presented Mrs. Fischer the award in the classroom and read two award nominations from the Greco and Reuteman school families. Every month B93.3 awards a local teacher with great prizes including a Target gift card for school supplies from Layton State Bank, a certificate from BBC Lighting, a certificate for fine desserts from Suzy's Cream Cheesecakes and a plaque from RCB Awards in Wauwatosa.
However...B93.3 recently announced that it will be awarding a Teacher of the Year to one of their 8 monthly winners. It was pointed out to me by another SJV parent that Mrs. Fischer is the only teacher represented from a private, Catholic school. Wouldn't it be a wonderful to not only recognize one of our SJV teachers but also highlight Catholic education in general? Parents and students can help by clicking onto B93.3 Teacher of the Year . Here you will see Jill Fischer's name the third down in the list. Voting ends on May 28th at midnight. (You can vote up to 100 times a day!!!) The winner will be announced by Ellen and Stan in the morning on May 30th. What a wonderful way for present, past and future students of Mrs. Fischer to wrap up the year!
