February is coming to a close already, and that means it's time for KDAT to announce our latest Top Teacher.

Each month, we pick an outstanding teacher, coach or administrator from our area schools to receive recognition online, on the air and prizes including a $25 Half Price Books Gift Card and Collins Road Theater movie passes.

That couldn't be a more appropriate prize for our latest winner, Karen Karr of Jackson Elementary. She was nominated by Keisha Glydewell who said,

She cares about her students. She loves getting kids to read and purchases all the books in her room's linrary on her own. The students can request books as well and she buys them.

We're lucky to have outstanding teachers like Karen in our area, and are happy to know she will be able to make great use out of her prizes!

If you know someone who deserves to be recognized for this award, nominate them using the form below.
