kirsten anderson and class

Kirsten Anderson, a Four Star Express instructor at Rush Creek Elementary, was recently honored as KS95’s Teacher of the Week. Nominated by the family member of a student in her class, Anderson was recognized for her unconditional love, stability and patience that have helped the student “grow and mature in ways [the family member] never imagined.”

The KS95 crew visited Anderson and her class at Rush Creek on Dec. 22 for the award presentation. Students shared why they like having Anderson as a teacher (“she teaches us how to do math!” one student exclaimed) and also learned about working at a radio station.

Anderson is one of approximately 30 local teachers who will be recognized by KS95 this school year. This spring, she’ll attend a banquet with the station’s other honorees and be entered into a drawing to win a $1,000 prize for her classroom.
