Obama salutes national teacher of the year
Tuesday - 4/23/2013, 4:58pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is honoring the finalists for the 2013 National Teacher of the Year award and saluting the winner, a Washington state teacher credited with improving science enrollment at his high school.
The winner is Jeff Charbonneau, a science teacher at Zillah High School in Washington state's Yakima Valley.
Obama made special mention of the six educators who died last December in Newtown, Conn., during a shooting spree where a lone gunman also killed 20 elementary school children.
The president said teachers encourage children's passions, inspire their imaginations.
Obama said: "These teachers, they are the ones we entrust with our kids, they are the people who love our kids."
