Figallo Named Teacher of the Month

McKinley language arts teacher Shaana Figallo has been named 96.7 The River's Teacher of the Month!

The station surprised her with swag and an award. She was nominated by her husband. 

Her husband wrote, "My lovely wife works extra hard ... to help guide these kids in a challenging environment. She brings games, plans activities, offers snacks and other resources to create a learning space that hopes to help them feel seen.”

Figallo says about her students, "I’m not going to ask them to give effort for me and not show them that I am giving the same effort."
