It's a quick trip down I-40, but when you get to Highland Park you'll find a pretty spectacular teacher working his magic at Highland Park Elementary School. This is a special teacher of the week because Mr. Gumfory has received the honor two times in his eight-year career. What's even more spectacular is the first time he was recognized he was in the Pre-K classroom. Today he's teaching fifth grade. His students say he makes learning fun and easy, and always treats his students with respect.

If you'd like to nominate a deserving educator for Teacher of the Week, send us an email at teacher@kamr.com. We recognize a teacher every Thursday afternoon on Studio 4.
