West Virginia Teacher of the Year for 2019 announced

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A fifth-grade teacher has been named West Virginia’s Teacher of the Year for 2019.

The state Education Department said in a news release that Jada Reeves of Bradley Elementary in Mount Hope was presented the award on Thursday. It includes more than $15,000 and the use of a new car.
