Each year, twenty-four teachers from the eight regions of the state are selected for this prestigious award. Mrs. Beasley truly has a heart for teaching and preparing young minds to become leaders of tomorrow. Her tireless devotion to her students are best described by some of her students: “Mrs. Beasley really and truly cares about me,” “I really work hard in her class because she expects me to do well”, and “She really encourages me to be successful and she makes learning fun” are just a few of the comments her students have to say about her. She truly is an inspiration to all educators. The award recipients will be honored at a ceremony on May 16, 2017 in the State Capital Building in Frankfort.
