MISSOULA – This week’s winner of a KPAX-TV and Republic Services One Class at a Time grant is Hawthorne Elementary School teacher Maureen Ojala.
KPAX-TV General Manager, Bob Hermes, and Republic Services Manager, Chad Bauer presented Ojala with a $250 check which she will use to buy audio books for her special needs students.
Ojala says the books will help build vocabulary, and increase word exposure. The books will be a tool to keep her classroom students on level with their peers.
“These books will be here and we’ll have a variety of books which all students will be able to access and increase their love of reading,” Ojala said.
