    West Teaching Excellence Award Recipients

    The 20 teachers who won the 2014 West Teaching Excellence Award -- and $5,000 apiece -- first learned about their win Sept. 29. It was a warm Monday morning, and Associate Superintendent Mike Kuhrt and staff from the Community Relations office made surprise visits to all 20 classrooms to deliver the exciting news in person. They delivered balloon bouquets to each teacher.

    The news was announced to each winner in front of their students, who clapped and cheered. For elementary teachers, Mr. Kuhrt asked the principal to pull a student from the winning teacher's classroom and meet the group in the hallway. The child was given the balloon bouquet and told to run with it into their classroom and loudly shout, "Congratulations!"
