They will be honored by Herb Kohl at a luncheon on April 8.
Ms. Vermillion comments: "My teaching philosophy centers on instilling a love of learning in my students by focusing on the unique social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development of each student."
Ms. Eide comments: "Each child that enters my class is a unique individual who deserves a safe, caring, and stimulating environment in which they can grow emotionally, socially, academically, and physically."
