It's always fun when you can pull off a surprise, and this morning we did just that! Karrie Fredrickson had no idea that she had been nominated by Kyrsten Salzl, one of her students, to be our Teacher of the Week. So when we showed up with gifts, it was even more fun!

Karrie is a teacher at Sartell High School, and here's what Kyrsten had to say about her:

She has taught me so much on what it is to be a leader in this world and community! She is always going above and beyond for everyone. She is always there for you when you need it and she will help you through anything! I took her leadership 101 class last year and now I am taking her leadership 102 class its changed me for the better , I have changed so much and I am so happy to have her as a teacher shes amazing! When I heard about this on the bus I right away thought that she should be recognized for how much she does for Sartell and our community.
