Nov. 21—Carey teaches first grade, coordinates angel tree project
DEERING — A Dawson-Bryant Elementary School teacher has been recognized by the Ohio Lottery as Partners in Education Teacher of the Month for Region 7 of the state.
Angie Carey teaches first grade at the school and has worked there for 20 years, assistant principal Monica Mahlmeister said.
Mahlmeister said the lottery honors teachers who excel in the classroom and show leadership outside of it as well.
"She always does the Angel Tree," Mahlmeister said of the project, which provides toys and necessities for local families in need during the Christmas season.
The program serves approximately 70 families.
"So I nominated her," Mahlmeister said. "She always makes sure things go to families with the most needs and coordinates the donations and who receives them."
