Teachers leave footprints not only in our minds but in our hearts, and this month News Four is honoring a special teacher with our Excellence in Education award.
Just before school let out for the summer, evening anchor Shelby Sheehan surprised Rollan Melton teacher Traci Carbon during a school assembly.
Parents say Ms. Carbon has created a classroom with high expectations where students can foster a true love of learning.
She comes early, stays late, prepping and planning for her 2nd and 3rd graders and you will always catch her at after school events.
Her kind and loving personality is what students gravitate to.
They can't wait to see her and the feeling seems mutual!
Carbon has been teaching for 18 years following in the footsteps of two grandparents, both teachers.
Congratulations to Traci Carbon. News Four's Excellence in Education Winner.
