A kindergarten teacher at Virginia Palmer Elementary School has been awarded News Four's Excellence in Education Award for the month of November.
84 year old Mrs. Kareck or Mrs. "K" as her little ones call her, has been volunteering in the schools for 30 years and just 7 years ago decided to go back to school to get her teaching degree.
Parents say she has an amazing amount of energy and truly loves every student.
Kareck says getting students off to a good start in kindergarten is critical to their education.
Congratulations to Mrs. "K." News Four's Excellence in Education Award Winner!
