Kennewick School Teacher Wins Classroom Makeover

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, WA - Thursday marked the last day of class for Kennewick students, and it was a very special day at Westgate Elementary School.

We stopped by their final day assembly to surprise one of their awesome teachers with a classroom makeover.  Kendra Scott is the life skills teacher at Westgate Elementary.  We presented her with a $250 check from Kadlec Health Systems.  She says the partnerships she forms with her students' parents are a big key to their success.

"Our parent-teacher relationship is very close.  We have each other's cell phone numbers and email addresses.  We have daily contact with most of the parents so it's a very working relationship," Scott said.

Scott was nominated by the mother of one of her students.  She says she plans to use the money to buy supplies and some interactive and educational projects for her students.
