Teacher of the Month: re:fab Honors Southcoast Educators

re:fab's teacher of the month award

re:fab’s Teacher of the Month Award has been going on for years and it is one of our favorite community activities. We teamed up with Fun 107 to honor our local teachers who go the extra mile.
Summertime is approaching, which means teachers are extremely busy. Thankfully, this month calls not only for National Teacher Appreciation Day on May 8th, but also another round of Fun 107’s Teacher of the Month Award. It’s time to recognize our educators for all they do.
Nothing beats your child coming home from school truly excited about what they learned that day. School teachers can be key figures in a young person’s development, and too often they go unnoticed. At re:fab, we wanted to change that for our community by teaming up with WFHN Fun 107 to honor our local Southcoast teachers who go the extra mile.
The Teacher of the Month Award has been going on for years and it is one of our favorite community activities. This year, between February and the end of May, we have been the project’s main sponsor. Teacher of the Month is about recognizing those Southcoast educators who go above and beyond for their students. It’s also about giving children the chance to display their enthusiasm about their learning environment.

Here’s how it works; The student or student’s parent goes to the Fun 107 website to nominate their favorite Southcoast teacher. They will write a submission explaining why they feel the teacher means a lot to them and why they deserve the award. We then read through all the submissions, tally the total for each teacher and decide on the deserving winner. That’s when the real fun begins.
After reading through all the positive, heartwarming submissions sent in from students and parents alike, it’s time to meet up with our friends at Fun 107. Together, we plan a time to surprise the winning teacher and their class. This is our favorite part. For a moment, the classroom is always confused. But when we begin announcing the award, everyone gets excited. We love ensuring children that their voices matter in the decision. They are so visibly proud of their teacher, it’s an amazing experience. Before we leave the school, the winning teacher is presented with gifts for their classroom and personal life, like classroom supplies, Bluetooth speakers, iPads and Staples gift cards.
For an insider look at exactly what we do, check out the video below. In the month of March, we surprised Sarah Barroso of East Fairhaven Elementary, and her class went wild! Don’t be surprised if you need a tissue.

Teacher of the Month will be going on a brief hiatus at the after May, and will pick back up in September, but we’re not done yet. If you know a teacher you think is deserving of this award, nominate them here! We’ve had a blast sponsoring the project and feel much closer to the Southcoast community. Stay tuned for the May winner!

If you can’t tell already, we are very proud of our community and like to see the Southcoast thrive. If you’d like to read more about local programs helping kids thrive, check out this post highlighting our involvement in 2018’s Lemonade Day.

EIFS + Stucco

Commercial buildings and industrial facilities featuring exterior walls with an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) have the attractiveness of a stucco finish but with greater insulation, toughness and longevity. In fact, unlike stucco, EIFS is actually a multi-layered system that includes insulation board, base coat and finish coat. It’s a combination that provides a classic look with modern advantages.

In addition to much-improved insulation, EIFS can improve indoor air quality and reduce the environmental impact of a structure throughout its lifetime, and it is available in a virtually unlimited range of colors and textures.

EIFS has transformed commercial buildings across all industries and our team of specialists can help you understand the benefits of this important application.
