The program is a regional competition with four regions corresponding to the state’s U.S. Congressional districts. Four elementary and four secondary classroom teachers may be selected for the award from each region.

Bob Seymour, Associate Superintendent for USD 383, told KMAN he’s happy to be able to recognize one of the district’s teachers.

“”We’ve had several of those, but they don’t always come from the district.  It’s not necessarily, you have one for every district.  So, we’re real proud of that.”
