Kindergarten teacher Kim Spooner has been teaching at Greeley's Frontier Academy for 24 years.

2020 has certainly been unlike any other.

Spooner got the most votes in Townsquare Media's October's Teacher Tuesday contest. She's had to adapt her classroom and kept the youngest of Northern Colorado students engaged and learning.

She wins $500 for her school, a $100 gift card to food delivery service NoCo Nosh and a free oil change from Ozzie's Bodyshop.  

Teacher Tuesday is also made possible by possible by Xfinity, which has been providing free WiFi to students and teachers in need during the pandemic. Nominate a worthy educator for future months in the form below.

Spooner called in for a quick interview with A.J. & Maxx to talk about teaching in 2020:
