North teacher named Kansas World Language Teacher of the Year

Jennifer Parga, World Language Teacher of the Year Jennifer Parga, Spanish teacher at North High School, was recognized on September 3 with the Kansas World Language Teacher of the Year Award.  North administrators, cheer and drumline surprised her with a Hall March throughout the school so everyone could celebrate her honor.  

“This is very surreal. I am honored,” Parga said. “I heard the drums and I told my class to go into the hall for the Hall March and I had no idea that it was for me. This is very special."

The award is sponsored by the Kansas World Language Association.
