Local teaching duo named Educator of the Year

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Zany lessons, matching outfits, and their years-long friendship all add up to a dynamic math duo. Voss and Benson are an 8th-grade co-teaching team at Northside Middle School, and Monday afternoon they were announced the winners of the Association for Middle-Level Education Educator of the Year. It’s usually a prize reserved for just one teacher, but the two women insist – they’re one singular team.
