Rotary Club honors Teachers of the Month


The Lake Elsinore Rotary Club honored three teachers on November 14 at the Teacher of the Month Program. November’s honorees are Sharon Lowe, Holly Hall and Maureen Neeper.

Sharon Lowe teaches 2nd grade at Donald Graham Elementary. She is known for being compassionate, fair and giving. She is seen as a true professional and understands the art of teaching. Principal Jeri Peterson pointed out Lowe’s true creativity when Lowe constructed a voting booth for her class on Election Day and the students had the opportunity to “vote” on the issues that matter most to them: superheroes and school lunch!

Holly Hall teaches special education at Railroad Canyon Elementary. Her peers take note that she loves all of her students as if they were her own. Principal Lori Recatto recognizes Hall’s ability to work with her students’ disabilities to find their strengths. Her students are excelling in reading and math. Hall attributes their success to a class motto to treat friends, adults and themselves “with respect and a whole lotta love!”

Maureen Neeper of Withrow Elementary is exemplary on Principal Ahment Baskent’s list. He describes Neeper as a teacher who is a humble leader and excels at teaching academics, along with social skills to her students. Neeper is recognized for her abilities to always go above and beyond and only asking for support from administration in return. Neeper notes that she is proud to be part of LEUSD and proclaims that the future starts now!

The Teacher of the Month program is hosted on the third Wednesday of every month during the school year at the Lake Elsinore Rotary Club meeting. The club meets at 7 a.m. at the Ortega High School Conference Center, 520 Chaney St. in Lake Elsinore. The public is welcome to attend the awards or meetings.
