It's that time of year again -- time to polish your apples and submit the great educator in your life for STAR's Teacher of the Week!
Mrs. Kathy Luksan, a kindergarten teacher at Panther Lake Elementary, was nominated by her student, Amaya Simmons. STAR 101.5’s morning personality Alan Budwill made a surprise visit to Mrs. Luksan’s classroom in Federal Way last Thursday.
"She's takes her time with each student," says Amaya's mother, Nicole.
"My daughter just started the school year and has already learned so much from Mrs. Luksan. I'm so happy that my child loves her class. From my daughters words... Mrs. Luckson has a nice smile, I also like that she let us play with a lot of fun stuff. She's a great teacher and I love her!
Each student received a goodie bag full of prizes from Sound Credit Union, Dairy Farmers of Washington, KOMO 4, and STAR 101.5, while Mrs. Brown received a personalized plaque from Issaquah Trophy & Awards, a $100 check, and $100 VISA gift card from Sound Credit Union. She also received a makeover gift card courtesy of Blanc N’ Schwartz Salon in Kent.
