ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Missouri’s teacher of the year is from Rockwood Summit High School. Jamie Manker teaches social studies at the high school.
“My students are my reward and my reason for success. I am an outstanding teacher not because of what kids see me do while lecturing in front of them but because of what kids are able to do while i stand beside them.” said Jamie Manker.
