COLORADO SPRINGS – A big congratulations to Emily Eberhart, the December winner of News 5’s and Salsa Brava’s Teacher First Award.

Ms. Eberhart is a 6th grade English Language Arts teacher at District 11’s North Middle School.

Even though she’s worked with elementary schoolers in the past, it’s the middle school kids she loves to work with.

“They have good attitudes, they really do,” said Eberhart. “They enjoy what they do, I just enjoy being with them.”

“I nominated Ms. Eberhart because she’s my favorite teacher in the whole world,” said Rosie Sanford. “She helped me do alternate projects when I didn’t understand the projects. She gave us and she’s just an amazing teacher.”

Ms. Eberhart now gets $500 for classroom supplies, a Salsa Brava gift card and a free happy hour.
