School just started, but we have our first Top Teacher to honor this month from 104-5 KDAT!

It's Molly Augustine of Starmont Elementary School in Arlington, IA.  She was nominated by David O'Dell, who shared these words of praise about Ms. Augustine:

Molly is a Top Teacher because she cares. She teaches 2nd/3rd grade Special Education and is one of Iowa's best. Her kids always come out of her class better than they went in. They read at higher levels and their other skills improve as well. She makes learning fun and really considers them her kids!

That's what this award is all about, so if you know of an exceptional teacher, coach or administrator at you or your kids' school (preschool through high school) send us your nomination below. We'll award our winner every month (like Molly) with a Half-Price Books gift card and Collins Road Theater movie passes.

Congratulations to Molly and thanks to all our fantastic educators and students embarking on a new school year.
