Superintendent Curt Nettles indicates Jessica Peterson and Elizabeth Cunningham will be in Bloomington Saturday night for the Illinois State Board of Education's Those Who Excel dinner.
Peterson was the Teacher of the Year in the district last year and Nettles says her peers, students and parents give her rave reviews.
Like Peterson, Cunningham is a fifth grade teacher, and was nominated by her peers at the Elementary School. Teachers say she goes above and beyond what is required and is great with the students.
Nettles calls the event a big deal and educators and administrators from around the state are a part of the evening.
Nettles says its nice to see the proper people in education recognized when there continue to be many challenges for the edcuation system in the state and educators.
