A top honor for one Albemarle County Educator: Teacher of the Year.
With her husband by her side, students and faculty presented Gwen Hairston with gifts. Hairston is a physical education teacher at Agnor-Hurt Elementary School. Her students agree Hairston was the best choice for teacher of the year.
"Mrs. Hairston is a great teacher. She is really fun," said Savannah Llyod, a student.
"She loves fitness and we love her, too" said Kaleb.
"Mrs. Hairston is the best gyms teacher ever in the whole entire universe," said M.J., another Agnor-Hurt student.
Faculty members said she is an inspiration to many.
