Being a teacher isn't the easiest job, the hours are longer than the school day, and some could argue that the pay isn't the best.
That's why the Bis-Man Chamber of Commerce is honoring five teachers who go above and beyond, despite the difficulties of the job.The first of five winners, Sara Berger is a professor at Sanford College of Nursing.
Berger got a surprise award ceremony. Her family, co-workers and students filled the room, taking pictures and cheering Berger on. The Chamber read Berger's nominations, and gave her the award for Post Secondary Outstanding Teacher of the Year.
The Chamber will be handing out the award for Secondary Outstanding Teacher of the Year early next week.
