Gr8 Job: Golden named Teacher of the Year

Teacher of the Year selected

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A teacher who people say is humble and kind was rewarded Thursday with the KAIT Teacher of the Year Award.

Tina Golden, who has taught special education at Valley View Junior High School for 39 years, received the honor at the Arkansas State University Fowler Center as part of a Scholarship Salute event honoring students.

Golden, who received the Teacher of the Month award in November, said at the time she wanted to make sure students understood that they can always do something to help someone on a daily basis.

“Know your purpose and walk in kindness, so that’s what I encourage everybody to do,” Golden said in November.

Congratulations Ms. Golden for the honor.
