MARCH - Our “teacher of the month” is Angela McQueen. She held a gunman’s arm in the air so students could escape safely in the Mattoon High School cafeteria. When Angela was interviewed she said "even though I didn't know a lot of the students around me, but my "mama bear instinct" came out and I wasn't going to let anyone hurt the students. The students teamed up and used their handprints to form the angel wings. The Angela McQueen Citizenship Award will be given to a Mattoon High School student this May.
