Park Middle School teacher wins Classroom Makeover

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA -  Andrea Mann has been a teacher for more than a decade. She recently got surprised with a $500 check after being nominated for a Classroom Makeover. 

Mrs. Mann teaches 7th grade at Park Middle School in Kennewick and her love of teaching goes way back.

"I had such an influence when I was in kindergarten. My teacher was just amazing and super supportive and very patient. From that moment on I decided I wanted to be a teacher," said Mann.

Mrs. Mann said she plans to use the $500 check to help pay for mock trials, which she is starting at Park Middle School.

Classroom Makeover is a partnership between NBC Right Now and Kadlec Regional Medical Center. You can nominate a deserving teacher here.
