The letter sent to us came from his student, Vanessa, who cited several reasons for her nomination.  

She has had Mr. Wollersheim for 3 years for 8th Grade English, 10th Grade English, and now for Film Studies. Vanessa says that Mr. Wollersheim keeps his classes engaged by making the learning process fun for them even with all the reading and writing they have to do.

Mr. Wollersheim’s humor is a strong characteristic as well according to Vanessa. “He’s a guy that can make the whole class laugh with a quick come back”.  

Then there’s the “theatre” side of what Jeremy Wollersheim does at Cathedral. “He still keeps his energy going” Vanessa says speaking of the work outside of the classroom in the productions that are produced at Cathedral. “All of the productions he has directed have been phenomenal” the nomination letter stated.  

One of the things that makes presenting the teacher of the month so special is that we surprise the teacher in class and of course they have no idea what’s happening.  

Yesterday when I went to Cathedral and met with Mr. James Lalley who helped carry out the surprise, he led me through the hallways of the school to the theatre where Mr. Wollersheim was about to start class.  

As I began to talk, I could hear the class begin to buzz as they realized what was happening. Mr. Wollersheim was taken aback for sure and was so grateful for the recognition. He was even more touched because the words of the nomination were from a student who he has made an impact on.  

Teachers do make an impact for sure, but students and their parents can also make an impact on teachers as well. One way to do that is by nominating them for Teacher of the Month. 

You can do so on the Mobile Apps (which are free in the app store) for 96.7 The River or Mix 94.9. Or you can nominate through the websites for those stations, river967.com or mix949.com.
