Andersen Teacher of the Year: Kelly Whittaker
Andersen second grade teacher Kelly Whittaker has been named the Teacher of the Year at her school. “I always knew I would become a teacher,” Whittaker said. “My interest in teaching began with a Little Golden Book titled We Like Kindergarten. It quickly became my favorite book. I was fascinated with the idea of teaching, and would pretend to be ‘Miss Hall.’ In high school, I completed internships within our local elementary schools and also worked at a private preschool after school. I surrounded myself with opportunities to teach and work with children. Teaching is a profession that can be especially challenging and yet tremendously rewarding. I feel children are precious and amazing, and they deserve to have teachers who believe in them, love them, support and encourage them.”
The District Teacher of the Year will be named during a reception for all teachers at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 9 at the Union Performing Arts Center.
