It's the first year Kris Smith has been teaching, and he won "My Teacher is Tops."
"I'm about to brag to all my friends, all the other teachers, like 'I don't know about y'all but I'm doing big things over there at Hunt Elementary School'," he said.
Taylor Clay nominated the Fort Valley graduate. Since she wasn't there, her classmate read why Smith is tops. "He helps me understand stuff I didn't know before, and he is nice, sweet and kind," wrote Clay.
