Dance music played in Coppell Middle School North’s cafeteria as students and staff members were treated to cups of Blue Bell ice cream on Oct. 2 in honor of GT history teacher Kimberly Kindred, who has been named a regional finalist in the competition for Texas Teacher of the Year.
“Being named (a regional Teacher of the Year) is incredible and completely surprising,” Kindred said. “I love Blue Bell. I just never thought they would do something so special for the Teachers of the Year. I’m honored, and it’s such a sweet treat for all of our students. It’s pretty amazing.
“The kids are going crazy. It’s awesome. Everybody loves Blue Bell. They’ve been very excited about it all day. They can’t wait for it.”
