FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) – A teacher was surprised with an award dubbed the “Oscars of Teaching” on Monday.

Angie Beavin, who teachers at Peaks Mill Elementary in Frankfort, Kentucky, received the $25,000 Milken Educator Award during an all school assembly.

The Milken Educator Award website states the honor “targets early-to-mid career education professionals for their already impressive achievements and, more significantly, for the promise of what they will accomplish in the future.”

Beavin was the only teacher to receive the award in Kentucky and one of only 33 teachers nationwide.
