This year’s winners were JoAnn Hamm, an English teacher at Webster Schroeder High School, and Jennifer Gunerman, a third grade teacher at Klem Rd. North Elementary.

Hamm was nominated by Schroeder senior Hannah De Chalais. Schroeder principal Paul Benz, WTA Representative Scott Richlin, and Oak Tree Award coordinator Wendy Sardella interrupted one of Hamm’s morning classes to announce the award.

Gunerman was nominated by Klem North parent Laura Blair. She was surprised by the news when it was announced on the school’s Morning Show, a move designed to allow the whole school to celebrate with her. Klem North principal Laura Ballou then joined Sardella in Gunerman’s classroom for the obligatory photo opportunity.

Both recipients received a celebratory cookie cake and cheers from their classes. Formal presentation of the Oak Tree Award will take place at the Board of Education in May.

The annual Oak Tree Award is designed to recognize teacher excellence in Webster Central Schools.
