LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- A Gibbs Magnet School teacher won Little Rock School District’s Elementary School Teacher of the Year.
On Friday, the teacher with the title, Jessica Sanders, allowed KARK into her classroom, or should we say outside her classroom.
The first-grade teacher starts her students’ day with 10 minutes of yoga.
Inside her classroom, students sit in flexible seating and under blue lights that create a calming atmosphere.
The teacher of 11 years explains how it feels to win this year.
“It is the most amazing and humbling thing,” says Sanders. “I know a lot of amazing teachers. A lot of amazing teachers teach here at Gibbs, so to kind of be chosen as the Elementary School Teacher of the Year is insane to me.”
She credits her co-workers for helping her achieve the award.
