Kohl honors Matthies



Debbie Matthies, a second-grade teacher at Elkhart Lake- Glenbeulah Elementary School, has been awarded the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation 2013 Fellowship Award. Mrs. Matthies is one of 100 teachers statewide recognized by the Kohl Foundation each year. Fellowship recipients are chosen for their superior ability to inspire a love of learning in their students, their ability to motivate others, and their leadership and service within and outside of the classroom. To be considered for the award Mrs. Matthies has been a teacher in the ELG school district for the past sixteen years. She strives to find new ways to make learning more meaningful and “hands-on” for her students. She creates innovative lessons that incorporate technology and the learning styles of all of her students. Students look forward to the impressive second grade plays that she directs and produces in spring. Her energy and enthusiasm is present in her classroom on a daily basis. As a district we commend Mrs. Matthies on this achievement and are very proud to have her at ELG Elementary School. Mrs. Matthies, along with other teacher and student Kohl Foundation winners, was honored at a luncheon in Green Bay on April 13. In addition to Mrs. Matthies receiving the Kohl Award, the school also receives a $1000 grant.
