Kristi Craven, media specialist at Liberty Elementary, is the district’s 2019 teacher of the year.

Craven was honored earlier this month at a celebration dinner at Bradwell Institute. She said she loves teaching.

"Helping struggling readers unlock the mystery and magic of text has been a joy rather than just a job," Craven said. "I know that when a student can read, they are ready to take on the challenges of the world."
