Jeanne Butkovich, third grade teacher at Osage Beach Elementary, was named the Camdenton Teacher of the Week.
Butkovich does a great job at building relationships with her students and motivating them to go above and beyond in their learning. She has also started an after school puppet club that writes and performs plays at the building “Leader in Me” rallies to help others learn about the seven habits: be proactive, begin with the end in mind, put first things first, think win-win, seek first to understand and then to be understood, synergize, and sharpen the saw (being healthy).
For more information on the “Leader in Me” program visit theleaderinme.org. Butkovich also works with the Osage Beach fourth grade math competition team by having after school math workshops and traveling with them to math contests. Teacher of the Week is sponsored by Smith Law Firm and recognizes positive contributions to the Camdenton students and district.
