LAWTON,Okla_Hundreds of Lawton Public School's finest gathered at City Hall this evening to honor the creme of the crop. Monday night was the Annual Teacher of the Year Ceremony. Among the nominees were two elementary school teachers and one middle school teacher.
After weeks of preparation and anticipation, Woodland Hills Elementary kindergarten teacher Dana Moore received the honor.
Moore said, "I'm so excited! I'm more excited to share it with all of my kindergarten kids. I call them my smart cookies, and it was great to have them here. I'm blessed like I said I have a passion and a career that have come together and I love to go to work each day."
Moore noted in her address that she was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago and several of her past students came to her side. She also said she loves teaching because you truly reap what you sew.
