Michael Andersen, 4th grade Spanish Immersion teacher at Burley Glenwood Elementary received a surprise visit from KING5 Evening Magazine Host Saint Bryan and administrators from South Kitsap School District. Mr. Andersen was voted as the Best Teacher in Western Washington. Students in Mr. Andersen’s class were part of the surprise and did a good job keeping the announcement secret.
“Mr. Andersen is a second year teacher at Burley and he has made a great impact in his short time at our school,” exclaimed Principal Darek Grant. “He makes learning fun for his kids and he is full of fresh ideas. We are proud of Mr. Andersen and this award is well deserved.”
The story will air on KING5’s Evening Magazine on Tuesday, November 7.
