Trempealeau teacher wins Tools for Schools award

Cindy Wegner is a 3rd grade teacher at Trempealeau Elementary school and is this month’s winner of the $500 dollar award from WXOW, Brenengen Auto, and SSE Music. Trempealeau Elementary recently adopted a program called "Reader’s Workshop" that gives students time every day to read and reflect.

Wegner says the money will be used to purchase high interest non-fiction books. WXOW, SSE Music, and Brenengen Auto help sponsor this award. "So I just wanted to build on that. I wanted to give them more opportunities because when we do the non-fiction units, I have a library, but my library is a lot of fiction. I just want more non-fiction to spark that interest that they have," said Wegner.

Teachers can apply for the Tools for Schools program on our website.

WXOW will help a teacher or class each month.
