Mirror staff reports:
Rebekah Cirrincione, a long-term substitute teacher for Federal Way Public Schools, was named Star 101.5’s Teacher of the Week. Cirrincione was visited by Star radio personality Marina Rockinger on Oct. 29, surprising the teacher in her classroom at Mirror Lake Elementary.
Each student received a “goody bag” full of prizes from Sound Credit Union, Dairy Farmers of Washington, KOMO 4, and Star 101.5. Cirrincione herself received a personalized plaque, and a $100 check and $100 Visa Gift Card from Sound Credit Union. Along with this, Cirrincione received a makeover gift card courtesy of Kent’s Blanc N’ Scwharz Salon.
Star 101.5’s Teacher of the Week is a program that allows students to nominate teachers to “recognize local, deserving teachers for their commitment to the quality education of children.” Cirrincione was nominated by her student Jenaveve Bates.
