South Dakota Teacher of the Year: Region 5
Koreen Hammel — Hot Springs Education Association. I am a 5th grade teacher at Hot Springs. I have been a member for 14 years. I joined SDEA because I was encouraged to in college. The best part about joining is helping teachers have a voice in their profession. I want to help our teachers grow in their profession and be leaders in what they do.
