A Tri-State teacher is shocked to receive top honors. Today at Corpus Christi School in Evansville, kindergarten teacher Karen Hinderliter is selected as the Peabody Energy Leader in Education. The 20 plus year veteran says she knew she was nominated, but it wasn't until the assembly and cameras that she realized she was the winner.
"I'm very passionate about what I do," said Hinderliter. "I love the little kids, and I just feel like it's so important to give them a good foundation to get started."
The Peabody award is based on excellence in teaching and educators, who help our children achieve their full potential.
