The Table Rock Lake Chamber of Commerce honored Diane Loy as September's Teacher of the Month.
Loy, a reading recovery teacher at Reeds Spring Primary School, shared the award with John Stivers of Blue Eye Schools.
Primary School Principal Karen Murray nominated Loy. In her nomination letter, Murray noted that Loy "offers support and encouragement to her colleagues as they strive to provide the highest quality literacy instruction for every child."
Loy genuinely enjoys her students and takes pride in their development and growth.
Loy said, "Reading is my passion and teaching beginning readers allows me the opportunity to share the experience and be part of each student's exciting journey to becoming lifelong readers."
The chamber honored Loy during its monthly luncheon on September 24 at Reeds Spring High School.
