Two Texoma teachers will start the new school year with a new title-- Region 9's Teacher of the Year.
During today's elementary and secondary teacher of the year luncheon, Hayley Langford, a third grade teacher in Graham, was named Elementary Teacher of the Year and Danny Holman, a yearbook media and technology teacher at Burkburnett Middle School, was named Secondary Teacher of the year.
Both say the honor was a total shock.
"It's not something I really set out to do. It's not something I really even thought about doing or achieving. This is totally out of the blue," says Holman.
"I work with a team of teachers and I wouldn't be here without them so therefore, I feel like I'm representing them in a very positive light," says Langford.
The state board of education will honor Langford and Holman, along with other regional winners, at an awards ceremony and luncheon in Austin on October 24th.
