Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Carol Hubert was the recipient of the 7th annual Goldfine Gold Star Teacher Award.
Hubert teaches first grade at Lester Park Elementary school.
Nine elementary school teachers were nominated for the prestigious award.
Teachers are nominated based on how they impact the classroom, school and community.
Manley and Lillian Goldfine established the award to recognize teachers.
Each year the award switches from high school to elementary school teachers.
"Manley and Lillian felt really strongly that they wanted to provide a financial award that would really have no strings attached, so it's a 5,000 dollar bonus for teachers to use as they wish," said Holly Sampson, President of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.
Hubert has taught first grade for 38 years.
