MISSOULA — This week’s winner of a KPAX-TV and Republic Services One Class at a Time grant is Jefferson Elementary School teacher Jenny Danielson.
KPAX General Manager Bob Hermes presented the $250 award to Danielson, who is a pre-school speech development instructor.
She will use the money to buy personal listening systems for her students who have speech and sound delays. Danielson says these listening systems help improve speech through their amplified input. This will not only benefit her students now but in the years to come.
“By helping them with their speech sounds now in preschool, we’re laying the foundation for later literacy development and improvements in their communication overall which will have far-reaching effects through their entire educational experience,” Danielson explained.
