MVT Week 3

BENTON — This week’s Orthopaedic Center of Southern Illinois MVT–Most Valuable Teacher Award goes to Mrs. Heather Fletcher, a fourth grade teacher at Benton Grade School.

Fletcher says it’s been quite a learning experience trying to figure out the best way to handle the in person and remote learning the kids are working through.

Linda Kleine told us how Mrs. Fletcher had been a major help for her family when they had to be quarantined for more than three weeks. Fletcher delivered not only the homework for Kleine’s son that is in her class, but her other three kids as well in addition to checking on the family’s well being. “She went above and beyond being a teacher during this pandemic,” Kleine said. “Truly blessed.”
