JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- This week First Coast News recognizes Kathleen Saunders from Duval Charter School at Arlington as our Teacher of the Week.
Mrs. Saunders is a 6th-8th grade science teacher and recently won the New American Hero Initiative. It is an award given by the Clarion Council and the Florida Charter School Alliance for teachers who have made an investment in their students' lives.
"A lot of time, dedication and hard work go into being a good teacher. It is not just what you do the minute you walk in, it is what you are thinking about on your way in, on your way home. It is a lot of planning to really be effective in the classroom," said Mrs. Saunders.
She said she loves not only the subject matter she teaches, but also her students!
So congratulations Mrs. Saunders for being our Teacher of the Week!
