KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -- A Kansas City, KS elementary teacher is the recent winner of KCTV5's Read to Achieve program.

KCK Early Childhood Center pre-school teacher Victoria Johnson was nominated by Jeremy Johnson.

Victoria Johnson received a $1,000 check from Kansas' chapter of the National Education Association.

"She is a phenomenal teacher who is passionate about helping kids get a jump start on their education. In addition to teaching the general population of students she also handles a full workload of special needs children and is close to completing her masters in deaf education. She believes that every child deserves a chance to be successful in school and works hard to catch the kids up to their peers," Jeremy Johnson said.
