LAKE ELSINORE – The Lake Elsinore Rotary Club honored three Lake Elsinore Unified School District teachers for their years of commitment and dedication at the Teacher of the Month program. September’s honorees included Phyllis Hofmeister of Earl Warren Elementary, Jessica Davison of Tuscany Hills Elementary and Patricia Brown of Rice Canyon Elementary.
Hofmeister is a second-grade teacher at Earl Warren. At the start of each school year, her emphasis is focused on building community skill and social-emotional learning. Earl Warren has successfully used the Boys Town model for social emotional learning and behavioral support to students.
Davidson is a special day class teacher spanning kindergarten to fifth grade. Her classroom is an example of the district’s multi-tiered system of student supports to support both students and parents of children with special needs.
Brown serves as a speech and language pathologist for Rice Canyon. She particularly enjoys working with pre-school children.
“We work on developing language and communication skills as early as three,” she said.
“The Teacher of the Month program truly enlightens us to the caring and committed teachers we have right here in the Elsinore Valley,” Rick Morsch, president of the Rotary Club of Lake Elsinore, said.
The Teacher of the Month program is hosted on the third Wednesday of every month during the school year at the Lake Elsinore Rotary Club meeting. The club meets at 7 a.m. at the Ortega Conference Center, 512 Chaney St., in Lake Elsinore. The public is welcome to attend the awards or Rotary’s weekly meetings.
