Longfellow Teacher Named 2014 Kohl Fellowship Winner

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Jeanne Halderson, a seventh grade teacher at Longfellow Middle School, was selected as a recipient of the 2014 Kohl’s Fellowship Award.

This program recognizes teaching excellence and innovation in the State of Wisconsin.   Recipients are selected by a statewide committee composed of civic leaders, representatives of education-related associations, and the program’s co-sponsors.  Halderson was one of only three southwest Wisconsin teachers selected and one of only 20 middle school educators across the state.

“Jeanne is one of those charismatic and caring teachers who has a passion for engaging students,” said Dr. Penny Reedy, Longfellow Principal.   

Fellowship recipients are chosen for their superior ability to inspire a love of learning in their students, their ability to motivate others, and for their leadership in service within and outside the classroom.  

In addition to her work in the classroom, Mrs. Halderson volunteers as the Onalaska Education Foundation’s Acts of Kindness Coordinator and as the Longfellow Middle School Food Shelf Facilitator.  

A luncheon will be held Sunday, March 23, at North High School in Eau Claire, honoring  Jeanne and the other recipients.  Along with this prestigious honor, Longfellow Middle School will receive a $1,000 grant, and Mrs. Halderson will be automatically entered as a nominee for the Wisconsin Teacher of the Year.
