Kimberly Cole is a special education teacher at Pleasant Valley Elementary school. She's been teaching for 15 years, and has been described by one parent as a God send.
Her tireless work before school, after school and during her summer vacations to ensure her kids make gains in their reading ability has garnered her this recognition this week, but she says this is just part of the educator's role.
