On Friday, December 7, Seattle radio station STAR 101.5 FM named Cherry Valley Elementary 2nd grade teacher, Jennifer Mickelson, the latest recipient of their STAR 101.5 FM Teacher of the Week award.  
In a local contest conducted by STAR 101.5 FM radio, Mickelson was nominated by student Nathan Faccone and caught completely by surprise when afternoon radio host Cris Kruse and STAR 101.5 FM staff members surprised the teacher and her class on Friday morning.
Each student received goody bags full of prizes from Applebee’s, Washington State Employees Credit Union, Dairy Farmers of Washington, KOMO 4, and STAR 101.5.  
Along with her Teacher of the Week accolades, Ms. Mickelson received a personalized plaque from Issaquah Trophy and Awards, and gifts from Washington State Employees Credit Union, and Applebee’s.  Additionally, Ms. Mickelson received a makeover courtesy of Blanc N’ Schwartz Salon in Kent.
STAR 101.5’s “Teacher of the Week” is a program that allows students in grades K-5 to recognize local, deserving teachers for their commitment to the quality education of children.
