WITN's Teacher of the Week for December 27 is Justin Huber of Wintergreen Intermediate School.
Huber teaches 4th grade at Wintergreen Intermediate School and is a graduate of East Carolina University.
Huber is currently in his fifth year of teaching and says that the most important thing to him is that his students leave his classroom as better versions of themselves.
He says, "the most important thing that my students will learn from me is that where they come from does not have to determine where they go in life. I wouldn't be able to teach these lessons without the positive influence from my parents and I wouldn't be where I am professionally without my mentors, David Cary and Christy Hodges."
Congratulations, Mr. Huber!
Every week during the school year WITN will recognize a Teacher of the Week on WITN News at Sunrise.
The winner receives a plaque and $100 Walmart gift card. To nominate your teacher, email TOTW@witn.com.
