ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Solar Bears and their partners at Pizza Hut of Central Florida are proud to announce that Olivia Duhaime has been selected as the Pizza Hut Teacher of the Month for February.
A seventh grade teacher at Southwest Middle School in Orlando, Ms. Duhaime received several nominations from students and parents, alike, who cited her hard work, dedication, and innovative teaching-style. She doesn't just offer a grade on a students paper, but also a personal note to help her students understand concepts better.
As the Teacher of the Month for February, Ms. Duhaime will receive a $100 Pizza Hut gift card, along with recognition and a suite at an upcoming Solar Bears home game.
"I think (being named Teacher of the Month) means always being willing to try new things," said Duhaime. "You have to learn from everyone around you, even your students, you need to put your whole self into making sure they can learn, grow, and become the best possible versions of themselves. Because at the end of the day it's about the kids, and what they have accomplished, and can continue to do."
