Debby Duda is retiring from G.C. Burkhead Elementary School on a high note.
Duda, music teacher at G.C. Burkhead, was named Elementary School Teacher of the Year by the Kentucky Music Educators Association at its awards presentation last week. Duda received $500 with the award to be used for materials for her classroom.
The award comes during Duda’s last year before she retires from her 29-year teaching career, all spent at G.C. Burkhead.
Duda learned she had won the award a few months ago, after receiving an email from the organization at home.
