Mix 93-1 along with Half Price Books and Aspen Creek Grill are proud to recognize outstanding teachers from our East Texas classrooms!

This week's recipient is Mrs. Jill Horton, a 2nd grade math and science teacher at Chandler Elementary in the Kilgore Independent School District.

Mrs. Horton was nominated by a peer who had these words to say about her:

Jill has taught her heart out to her students for 40 years! She is always adapting and buying new things to incorporate into her classroom. If she thinks the students will enjoy it she doesn't hesitate to buy it for her class. Jill never complains about the extra costs, she just loves to see her students learning. She tries to incorporate hands-on math everyday. She is amazing and deserves the world. I am student teaching in her classroom, after she graciously opened her door to me. I wish nothing but to become half of the teacher she has been for the past 40 years."

Mix 93-1 along with Half Price Books and Aspen Creek Grill are proud to name Mrs. Horton as the Mix 93-1 Teacher Of The Week.
