from LS R-7 Schools

She is one of six Regional Teachers of the Year from the Kansas City area.

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) announced the 2018-19 Regional Teachers of the Year as part of the Missouri Teacher of the Year program. Committees comprised of peers and key stakeholders for each Regional Professional Development Center (RPDC) area selected the 32 teachers, who are each now eligible for the 2019 Missouri teacher of the year award.

“I am truly humbled and honored to represent the Lee's Summit R-7 School District as one of Missouri's Regional Teachers of the Year.  It is difficult to accept recognition without honoring the many talented, selfless educators responsible for influencing my teaching. Learning from a supportive group of educators, parents and a community that embraces each child and appreciates learning is invaluable,” Ms. Braun says.
