Teacher of the Month

Teacher of the Month

WGN teamed up with Saint Xavier University to host the Teacher of the Month from 2011 to 2018. During that time, 70 teachers were honored for their hard work, diligence and willingness to go the extra mile. Because of their pursuit of excellence, SXU granted these teachers with $1,000 to purchase school supplies and materials that will aid them their classrooms.

All awarded teachers were nominated by students, aged 13 or older in the Chicagoland area, who felt that their teachers made a difference in their school or community. Please browse the academic years on the left-hand side to learn more about the teachers and watch a video about their story!
