JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- This week's Teacher of the Week teaches kindergarten and first grade at Chet's Creek Elementary.
"I became a teacher because I love kids," said Haley Alvarado. "I really think that it's important to teach them as much as you can about life, about academics, about the world."
She's been teaching for 11 years, and said even though the students are young, what they learn in the classroom has an impact on them later in life.
"There are so many life lessons you can teach them just for modeling for them," Advarado said.
