For the past 20 years, Union County Public Schools has chosen one teacher each year as the best of the best.
This year, Kerri Sofsian, a first-grade teacher at Kensington Elementary School, has won the top teacher title for the 2013-14 school year.
Sofsian was named during Thursday's (April 25, 2013) UCPS Teacher of the Year Banquet. She said she was very surprised when she heard her name called. “I’ve been in various teachers’ classrooms and I know how good they are,” she said. “It’s really hard to believe that I could be at the top of that caliber.”
