Now, the results are in.

October's Teacher of the Month is...

Jordyn Utesch, a second grade teacher at Bethke Elementary School. Ms. Utesch's student Logan nominated her for making "school a safe place for me to learn and have fun."

Ms. Utesch told Townsquare NoCo that her favorite thing about being a teacher is seeing her students' love for learning, stating that they "bring such a fantastic energy and perspective to school every day, and getting to see it firsthand is the reason that I do what I do."

When she's not teaching, Ms. Utesch likes listening to country music and watching New Girl.

To thank Ms. Utesch for working hard to serve local students in our community, we're honoring her with four amazing prizes.

October's Teacher Tuesday winner takes home:

Congratulations, Ms. Utesch! Don't forget to nominate a deserving Northern Colorado educator in your life for November's Teacher Tuesday contest here.
