Spanish Springs Teacher Named Excellence in Education Award Winner

Excellence in Education, Oct. 2016 - Sara Kwasna

An English teacher at Spanish Springs High School is always upping her game, making sure she's the best she can be for her students.

Because of that, this month Sara Kwasna is News 4's Excellence in Education Award Winner!

Evening anchor Shelby Sheehan and a crew surprised her during class on Tuesday with the award.

Kwasna has been teaching for 16 years, 10 of those at Spanish Springs High School.

Her colleagues say she works tirelessly and inspires her students and other teachers to be better.

Redesigning her curriculum every year, being an adviser to the Asian Culture Club and connecting her students with local authors are just some of the examples.

Kwasna says changing things up and learning new ways of teaching every year keep it interesting for both her and her students, and no two days are the same!

Congratulations to Sara Kwasna, News 4's Excellence in Education Award Winner for the month of October.
