SECTION, Ala. (WHNT) - Crystal Woods, a 14-year veteran teacher at Macedonia Elementary School in Jackson County, teaches 4th grade and is this week's recipient of WHNT's Tools for Teachers Award. We recently surprised Ms. Woods in her classroom to shine the spotlight on our honoree and give her 319 dollars to spend in her classroom.

Ms. Woods was nominated by a current student who actually sent us a two-page handwritten letter asking us to honor her teacher. The Macedonia fourth grader wanted to thank her teacher for making learning a fun experience through projects and other hands-on activities.

If you know a worthy teacher, coach, principal, or aide, tell us about them through the Tools for Teachers nomination form.
