A special award in memory of one 3rd grade teacher was given to another on Wednesday.
The 2011 Dorothy Moser Huffman Award for Creative Teaching was presented to Jessica Faver at Jefferson Elementary.
The $1,000 award given by the WFISD foundation is meant for the teacher to use in any way he or she chooses for their classroom.
The award was first created in memory of Mrs. Huffman. She was a WFISD teacher who taught at many local elementary schools from 1952 through 1990.
Mrs. Huffman loved teaching 3rd grade children, a grade she thought was such a crucial time to prepare kids for the transition to 4th grade.
