A Bennett Elementary 2nd grade teacher is the Fargo School District Teacher of the Year. Kelly Welle was surprised with the award in the school's gym today.

The school district says Welle was chosen based on the overwhelming response from colleagues, parents and former students. They paint her as a teacher who loves her job, and makes students feel good about themselves.

Kelly Welle – Fargo Teacher of the Year: “When I went into teaching I just thought I love children and I want to make a difference in their lives, not in anybody else's, but in their life, and I feel like that's what it's given me today.”

Welle has been teaching in Fargo since 1989. She's a graduate of MSUM and St. Thomas.
