PUEBLO – Congratulations to the News 5 ‘Teachers First’ award winner, Jacqueline Riggs.

KOAA News5 was happy to honor Jacqueline this week for her work at Pueblo East High.

Ms. Riggs is not only an English Teacher, but also teaches drama and is well known for going about and beyond to help her students, in and out of the classroom.

“When I was 8-years-old, I started my own little school in my neighborhood, teaching my younger neighbors how to read and count and do their colors,” Riggs said. “So they were very prepared when they went to kindergarten and I just knew I was going to be a teacher. I was born to do this.”

Congratulation to Ms. Riggs. News5 is happy to honor you for all you do for the kids of Pueblo!
