An area teacher got quite a surprise this morning.
Rehobeth Elementary School 3rd grade Teacher Jacqulyn Ketchum was given the WTVY and Century-Link Teacher of the Month Award.
Ketchum has been teaching for 16 years but this is her first year at Rehobeth Elementary.
She says it's a pleasure to receive the award.
It's actually her second time as our teacher of the month.
She also received it when she taught at Grandview Elementary.
Ketchum says she enjoys being with the kids everyday and is thankful to be a teacher.
