BLUE SPRINGS, MO (KCTV) -

Once again this school year, KCTV5 is teaming up with the Missouri and Kansas National Education Associations for our "Read to Achieve" program. 

On Thursday, Alexis Del Cid and Lisa Teachman stopped by Blue Springs High School to surprise Jennifer Ewan with a much deserved $1,000 prize. 

"It's really exciting because I know there are so many teachers working hard and I know that I'm not the only person that stays those late nights and comes in those early mornings," she said. 

The full nomination letter for Ewan: 

Jennifer loves teaching and it shows by her actions both in the classroom and on the fields of cross country and track. She teaches engineering and new this year a computer class. She didn't even hesitate when asked to teach a new class.  She was up for the challenge. Jennifer likes to challenge her students and broaden their horizons and with this computer class she can do that. She is firm, but fair and students know where they stand with her and what she expects from them. She spends extra hours coaching cross country and track and even takes her team to Colorado each summer to experience higher altitude running. She is a great teaching role model for all of us and her love of teaching shines through.
