Two K-W teachers nominated for Teacher of the Year

Two Kenyon-Wanamingo teachers have been nominated for Minnesota Teacher of the Year.
Kevin Anderson is a fourth-grade teacher in the elementary school. He has been a teacher in the district for 19 years and has taught fourth grade for 18 of those years.
A graduate of Concordia College in Moorhead, he completed his master's degree at St. Mary's University.
In nominating him for Teacher of the Year, Elementary Principal Matt Ryan said, "He has a passion for helping students succeed and preparing them to be successful in their years beyond fourth grade.
"The lessons learned in Mr. Anderson's classroom have a lasting impact on students academically, socially and behaviorally," Ryan continued. "This is evident when, year after year, Mr. Anderson is recognized by multiple students at the National Honor Society Induction Ceremony as their most influential teacher."
Chuck Larson is the agriculture teacher and FFA adviser at the Middle-High School and was nominated by Brent Ashland.
Larson has taught at Kenyon-Wanamingo since 2004. He received his bachelor's degree in education from North Dakota State University in 1987 and his master's degree in educational leadership from Winona State University in 2011.
"Mr. Larson's agriculture program at Kenyon-Wanamingo is exemplary for a small, rural district where agriculture is a driving force in our local economy," Ashland said.
"He is highly respected by community members, colleagues, and most importantly, his students. The strength of his program was validated at the 2014 Minnesota State Fair, where the Kenyon-Wanamingo FFA chapter was awarded the Premier Chapter Award for the best overall exhibit."
The Minnesota Teacher of the Year award is sponsored by Education Minnesota.
