Today NBC 5 and SMU were at Harmony School of Nature to recognize English teacher Ms. Laura Hunter as the NBC5 and SMU Excellent Educator for January! They presented her with a check for $1000 for her classroom! Ms. Hunter is a dedicated teacher who has earned the respect and loyalty of not only her students but from her fellow teachers. NBC correspondent Katy Blakey noted that several teachers and students nominated her for this award. It was student Christopher Rudolph’s nomination that really summed the sentiments up when he shared that “She ‘Ms. Hunter’ is caring for her students past and present and has done more for our school than I could put into 500 words.” Principal Fidan stated that he “is very proud to have such an outstanding staff of educators who always put students first!”
