Charlotte, NC – Teacher Karen Oliver of Erwin Montessori in Greensboro, NC is $1,000 richer thanks to Harris Teeter Together in Education.  Ms. Oliver received Harris Teeter’s fourth Teachers of Excellence award presented during the 2010/2011 school year. Erwin Montessori also received a $1,000 check.

Ms. Oliver has been with Erwin Montessori since 2003 and teaches Reading for the Hearing Impaired, grades 1st and 2nd.  Ms. Oliver is also very active outside of her classroom. She is part of the Café and Daily 5 Book Club and has volunteered many hours attending events to help her develop such as NC Council of Social Studies Conference.  Ms. Oliver has been working in the hearing impaired students since 1988.

To be eligible to participate in the Harris Teeter Together in Education Teachers of Excellence Award, a teacher must teach at a school that is registered with the Harris Teeter Together in Education program and the school principal or Together in Education coordinator must nominate the eligible faculty member.  The school must have a minimum of 100 people linked to its TIE school code number. Harris Teeter Together in Education reviews all applications received and awards a total of ten Teachers of Excellence winners during the current school year, one per month starting in October and two each in April and May. 

Since Erwin Montessori joined Together in Education, Harris Teeter has donated over $4,000 to it through Together in Education.  This donation increases that amount to over $5,000 and Ms. Oliver received $1,000 as well.
