SXU and WGN-TV’s Teacher of the Month for June: Melissa Rose

Saint Xavier University (SXU) has partnered with WGN-TV Chicago to highlight the Teacher of the Month program, which honors educators who make a difference in their communities. The program recognizes outstanding kindergarten, elementary, junior high, high school, vocational, and special education teachers in Chicagoland and northwest Indiana.

Melissa Rose is a math teacher at Oak Lawn-Hometown Middle School. Rose is also the June Teacher of the Month. Teachers of the Month also will appear on the SXU and WGN-TV websites.

Teachers of the Month are chosen based on educational achievements in the classroom, community contributions and innovativeness of the program/techniques used by the teacher. Each Teacher of the Month is featured on the WGN-TV news and will receive a certificate of recognition. Additionally, each Teacher of the Month will receive a $1,000 donation from SXU to purchase school supplies for his or her classroom.
