    Teachers in the W.F.I.S.D. were honored Thursday night. 

    Since 1989 the school district has honored teachers through the Teacher of the Year program. 

    Thursday night at the annual banquet the Teacher of the Year was announced. 

    Wichita Falls High School English teacher, Julie Yandell was selected as the 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year.
 
    She credited her students for her love of teaching. 

    "I just love being around the kids and I love teaching seniors, because there is something very ceremonial about being with kids right before they go off in the world. It's such a honor to get to spend that time with them," Yandell said. 

    Rider High School history teacher, Scott Green and Zundy Junior High tech application teacher, Brian Bass were the second and third finalists for the award.
