Mr. DeFrain Receives Teacher of the Month Award
Sixth grade teacher, Mr. DeFrain was recently nominated for Teacher of the Month from Sky Zone Trampoline Park. Twelve students nominated him for the award, which was presented by Sky Zone employees Carson Schrader, general manager; Carly Kitchen, Assistant Manager; and Logan Cady, marketing manager.
Mrs. Chandler and the Sky Zone managers entered his classroom on Monday afternoon to surprise him with the award. Mr. DeFrain was not aware of his nomination. He was given a Teacher of the Month certificate and all sixth graders received a free jump pass to Sky Zone.
After receiving the award he said, “It surprised me. It’s overwhelming. It’s an honor to know the students that are learning from me also like me.”
The Teacher of the Month program, which was implemented 3 months ago, has been recognizing teachers in the area based off of nominations at their Fort Wayne branch.
Mrs. Chandler was pleased to see Mr. DeFrain nominated for the award and added, “He is really good at building relationships with the kids.”
