Kira is a freshman at Delaware Military Academy and for her English class was assigned to write an essay about her favorite teacher. Kira’s favorite teacher was her middle school (Brandywine Springs School) Spanish teacher, Mrs. Beverly Igo. Kira wrote a beautiful essay and all the students had to submit their essays to TeenInk.com. Kira’s essay was chosen #1 for January 7, 2017 and was featured on the front page of the Nonfiction/Educator of the Year section of TeenInk.com for the entire day. Since Kira almost never checks her email, she did not find out about this until March 2017, and apparently it’s not on the website anymore, but we are very proud of Kira, and we are thankful that Kira has had so many wonderful, dedicated teachers at Brandywine Springs and Delaware Military Academy, including her favorite Mrs. Igo.
