The winner and her class

We got some super exciting news yesterday when Kris let us know that she was selected as the Teach of the Week by STAR 101.5! We can’t think of anyone more derserving of such an honor. We are so proud of you Mom!

From the article:

Mark Twain Elementary teacher, Kris McKenna, was named Teacher of the Week in a local contest conducted by STAR 101.5 radio. McKenna, a 1st grade teacher, was nominated by her student, Jamie La Breck.

Curt Kruse, STAR 101.5’s Afternoon Show co-host, made a surprise visit to McKenna’s classroom in Kirkland.

Each student received a goody bag full of prizes from McDonald’s, City University of Seattle, KOMO 4, KOMO Communities and STAR 101.5. McKenna received a personalized plaque from Issaquah Trophies and a $100 check from City University of Seattle.

She is also entered as one of 24 teachers from the 2010/2011 school year that could win an all new redesigned 2011 Volkswagen Jetta from Chaplins Bellevue Volkswagen. The car will be given away on June 10 at Fisher Plaza.
