Erie Bank Sports Park and Erie News Now would like to congratulate Erie’s Ultimate Superhero Teacher, Mr. Michael Kupniewski, who is a fourth and fifth grade teacher at Robison Elementary.

He won a $250 Ultimate Gift Card. His students also won free ice skating passes to Erie Bank Sports Park.

Here's why Mr. Kupniewski was nominated by one of his students:

He always makes us smile with goofy daily jokes. He helps us with anything we need no matter how busy he is, and he comes up with cool games to help us learn. This is why Mr. Kupniewski is a super hero teacher!

Be sure to offer congratulations when you see Mr. Kupniewski!

We also want to thank everyone who participated in our Ultimate Superhero Teacher contest. It is wonderful to be part of such a great community!
