Teacher Honors Given In Kilgore

Some East Texas educators received some recognition for their excellence in teaching today in Kilgore. Awards were presented today at the Region 7 Education Services Center in Kilgore.

Two educators received "teacher of the year" honors. Elkhart teacher, Bonnie Link was chosen as "elementary teacher of the year,"  and Robert E. Lee English teacher, Becky Martin, was given the "secondary teacher of the year" award. State Senator Kevin Eltife was there to congratulate the winners, and for the teachers, it was very gratifying.

"I work at a campus where we are very much a team working together and i feel like this award was not earned by me alone," said Elkhart teacher Bonnie Link.

The winners are selected by their peers, locally and regionally. State teacher of the year will be selected at the end of this month in Austin.
