On Monday, Helin was expected to be among 16 teachers from across Illinois to be recognized as Heroes in the Classroom at the NFL game between the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions.

National Football League teams in Atlanta, Chicago, San Franciso and Seattle have teamed up with Washington-based financial services company, Symetra, to celebrate local teachers and provide essential funding for classroom projects. Gallgher Benefit Services supports the initiative locally. Heroes in the Classroom are named each week during the NFL season.

Award winners received a $1,000 donation to their classroom, a certificate, two tickets to a Bears regular season game, in-game video recognition and VIP sideline access during the pregame.

New principal: Cambridge Lakes Charter School in Pingree Grove has announced a new principal will lead the school beginning Nov. 1.

Stephanie Stanton will take over administrative oversight and instructional leadership at the Green School following the departure of Brett Gayer, who is moving to Indiana to continue his career as an educational administrator. Stanton will also continue her role as administrator of special Learning services, though a new teacher will take over her classroom role.
