94.9 HOM is honoring the hardworking educators of northern New England, with the HOM Teacher of the Month! We're asking listeners to nominate a teacher they know that goes above and beyond their call of duty, and makes a real difference in the lives of their students. The teacher who receives the recognition each month receives a $250 Visa gift card from our friends at Cumberland County Federal Credit Union.

For the month of November, we've selected Jenna Sementelli, a 3rd grade teacher at Gilbert School in Augusta. Here's part of the message we received about her:

Jenna is an amazing teacher all the way around! She works so hard inside and outside of the classroom! She loves it so much that she even does tutoring after school! She works with Girls on the Run and coaches girls soccer at Cony High School!
She is just an all around great person that works so hard to teach and care for her class and students in need outside of the classroom every year! I would love to see her be recognized for all that she does with her students and children in need of extra help in learning!

We had Jenna call into the HOM Morning Show to hear her story, and share the great news. You can listen below!
