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!
Mr. Wes Smith, a 5th grade teacher from Seahurst Elementary School, was nominated by his student, Destinee McKinion. STAR 101.5’s morning personality Curt Kruse made a surprise visit to Mr. Smith’s classroom in Burien last Thursday.
"He keeps the line of communication open with us so we can work together to help Destinee as best we can," says Destinee's grandmother.
Each student received a goodie bag full of prizes from Sound Credit Union, Dairy Farmers of Washington, KOMO 4, and STAR 101.5, while Mr. Smith 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.
