Hanna King honored for student-teaching excellence
Longview High School history teacher Hanna King was awarded the “Quest for Quality Certificate of Excellence” for outstanding achievement in student teaching by the Texas Directors of Field Experience.

The award is given to student teachers who exemplify qualities essential for the 21st century classroom.

“Early on, Ms. King demonstrated her knack for seamlessly weaving the multi-faceted roles of a classroom teacher — from disciplinarian, to counselor, to encourager and instructor,” said Rex McCullough, who teaches history at Hallsville High School and was her cooperating teacher. “Ms. King's students still ask about her to this day.”
