Home Teacher Appreciation Contest September 2017 Winner: Emily Birecki

Congratulations to our September Teacher Appreciation Winner: Emily Birecki!

Teacher Appreciation Contest

With the help of Willis Junior High School’s Assistant Principal Brett Epstein, The Husband & Wife Law Team surprised another deserving recipient with their monthly Teacher Appreciation Award. Emily Birecki was brought into the library before school started and was surprised by all of her fellow teachers. Attorney Mark Breyer was waiting at the front of the library for Emily with a giant check in the amount of $250.00, a Teacher Appreciation plaque, and a few more surprises! After receiving a standing ovation from her fellow teachers, they were all surprised with a pizza party for Ms. Birecki’s class and also a pizza party for the entire staff! But the best was yet to come…after being surprised, being told of her feature spot on The Husband and Wife Billboards for a day, she was then surprised with cooking supplies for her class to put to great use. Congratulations Ms. Birecki!

Emily has demonstrated extraordinary effort, heart, and professionalism as a special education teacher at Willis Junior High. Emily works with all students at Willis, from those with special needs in her classroom to the students who show up in large numbers to her best buddies club. Not only does she provide support and love for her students; she is also a tremendous example of what going the extra mile looks like to her colleagues. Almost every day you can find her after school working with the unified sports program where students with disabilities have fun participating in an array of diverse competitive sports. Her dedication, honesty, and care for all is something everyone can learn from.

How can you reward your favorite teacher? It’s simple!

All too often great teachers go unrecognized for the hard work and dedication they pour into the classroom. The Husband & Wife Law Team’s Teacher Appreciation Award aims to give credit where it is due, by rewarding one amazing teacher each month.

Mark and Alexis, successful attorneys and parents to 8 children, know the impact a great teacher makes. “I grew up seeing the importance of teachers in communities, and saw firsthand how they give so freely, so their students can thrive,” said Mark Breyer.
