Carrie Chesley Chosen For Heart of the Class Award

KTIS MAY 21, 2019 -- Congratulations to Carrie Chesley, winner of the Heart of the Class award! Carrie Chesley is a 4th grade teacher at Eagle Creek Elementary. The Heart of the Class is run by the 98.5 KTIS radio station. 50 teachers from around the state were awarded by the radio station for going above and beyond for their students and helping them become their best.


“I was truly honored and taken by complete surprise,” said Carrie Chesley. “When I received the nomination, I was reminded of what it is I do day-to-day and WHY I do it.  It is easy to get caught-up in the chaos and challenges, but at the end of the day I need to remember what matters most.”


The teachers were honored at a special event. Chesley was also awarded $250 to use in the classroom.
