A long time Title One teacher was given the Teacher of the Year award at Triton Elementary School last Wednesday.

This year's award was given to Sheryl Pischke for her dedication to students, her dedication to the Title One program - during the school year and the summer months, and for her tireless efforts helping students. In nomination letters her colleagues had written, they described Pischke as being the "go to" gal whenever student concerns came up and pointed out that she is involved in all the committees regarding student data. Another wrote that Pischke is the "core of our elementary school, not only does she run the Title One program during the school year and in the summer, she serves on every committee in the building."

Pischke was been a teacher at Triton for 33 years and for the past nine years has worked as the Title One Lead Teacher. She received her Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in K-12 Learning Disabilities. In 2004 she received her Master Degree in Education from Winona State.

On an average day the Title One program helps about 120 students in the elementary school and also serves about 50 students during homework club in the morning and about 60 students in Targeted Services in the afternoon, Pischke helps with all of it. She also helped write the K-3 Literacy Plan for the statewide annual yearly progress plan and she helps with MCA testing by prepping the students before the annual tests. She's a part of the Student Intervention Team, Teacher Assistant Team and the DATA group for reading fluency.

The Teacher of the Year Award is given out every fall and teachers are nominated by their colleagues and then asked to submit responses to a questionnaire that is given by the Teacher of the Year Committee, which is made up of former teachers of the year who are still on the Triton teaching staff. The responses are then scored using a seven point scoring rubric to choose the Teacher of the Year.

Along with being selected as the teacher of the year at Triton, Pischke has been nominated as Minnesota State Teacher of the Year by the teacher's organization. The Minnesota State Teacher of the Year award will be announced in May.
