WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - It’s National Teacher Appreciation Week and celebrations are underway all across the country, including many here in Texoma.

With all the love coming their way, one teacher at Christ Academy in Wichita Falls is showing gratitude for her job and the vital role teachers get to play in the lives of students and how important it is to mold students from a young age.

“First and foremost is I wanted to instill a love of school and a love of learning from the very beginning because it sets the tone for years to come for little ones if you do it right and you make it fun,” said Karie Levell, division head of Early Childhood. “They love learning and the end result is much better at the end of the year than dragging them through the door every morning. I want them to come bouncing in the room, wanting to come crying when they are sick because they want to be at school. That’s the goal.”

We here at News Channel 6 also want to thank teachers for all the hard work they do to raise the next generation.
