Wal-Mart Names 2008 Teacher Of The Year

Wal-Mart Names 2008 Teacher Of The Year

When Leeanna Stacy returned with her Hawthorne Elementary kindergarten students from recess, she was planning on a lesson in reading and writing. It turns out, the principal, Wal-Mart, and her parents, had other plans for her. They wanted to congratulate her on being named the Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year. 

And the morning of writing came as a $1,000-dollar check to the school and a gift card for classroom supplies. Leeanna Stacy says, "I am very humbled by this award. I feel blessed by this award." Her parents are also teachers, who took a school day off to congratulate their daughter for pursuing a career that runs in the family.
Larry Stacy says, "We have encouraged Leeanna to do whatever she wanted to do, she is so talented..." 

Leeanna Stacy want is to use the award to give back to those who impact her life.  Leeanna Stacy says, "It's not an award for me. It's an award for my children, for my parents, who taught me to be the passionate teacher I am."

Two proud parents, 21 students... and a little of what Ms. Stacy calls, "happy tears."
