Bulls welcome Kia Educators of the Month for regular season finale

By Adam Fluck | 04.16.2015

The Chicago Bulls on Wednesday welcomed all Kia Educators of the Month from the 2014-15 season to the United Center for the team’s final regular season game to enjoy a special evening of VIP treatment, including a center court photo and pregame dinner.

As part of the Bulls’ commitment to youth education, the organization joined Kia in recognizing one teacher a month at a home game beginning in January for their hard work and achievements in and out of the classroom.

Each honoree received two tickets, an official Kia Educator of the Month award, Bulls and Kia promotional items, and $1,500 to be used for classroom supplies and improvements.

The Bulls want to again congratulate this season’s Kia Educators of the Month:

  • Patrice Morris: Fourth grade teacher at Brown Elementary School (January)
  • Adam Dassow: Sixth grade teacher at Aspira-Haugan Middle School (February)
  • Daneal Silvers: Kindergarten teacher at Edison Regional Gifted Center (March)
  • Mitch Mangoba: Sixth grade math and science teacher at Bernhard Moos Elementary School (April)
