Marty Angelo teaches sixth graders at Harriet Gifford Elementary School in Elgin. Here he works with Montez Miller, 11, in math class. Angelo recently was honored for his dedication and service as a teacher by Chicago Bears Chairman of the Board George McCaskey. Angelo has worked at the Elgin school for 22 years, but the past year has been perhaps his most challenging after his wife, Melodie, was diagnosed with cancer, and he and his family faced her declining health and prognosis. Melodie Angelo died in September. Angelo is always ready to go above and beyond for his students. He rides the bus home with them each day, makes home visits after too many absent days, attends their sports games on the weekends and happily welcomes back Harriet Gifford alums, including a former student who visited Angelo while on leave from the Army.
