Best Teacher / Professor

It has been a heckuva year, and no one has handled it quite as gracefully as local teachers. Angie Kitchner (Mondovi, 4K) was voted the readers’ favorite teacher this year. Altoona Middle School houses the classrooms of the next two favorites, Colleen Chmelik and Lauren Lierman. A close, honorable fourth place is UW-Eau Claire English Professor B.J. Hollars. –Will Seward
