Two Andover teachers have been named 2021 Horizon Award recipients by the Kansas State Department of Education.
Victoria Hoerst, second-grade teacher at Wheatland Elementary School, and Brooke Hernandez, language arts teacher at Andover Middle School, were among the 32 statewide recipients of the award, which honors outstanding second-year teachers.
Dr. Randy Watson, Kansas Commissioner of Education, surprised the recipients with a Zoom call on Jan. 7. (Watch a portion of those calls below.)
This is the second straight year that two Andover teachers received the Horizon Award.
