Hayden Valley Elementary School teacher Kathy Deepe smiles as she is acknowledged as a Peabody Energy Leader in Education on Wednesday in her classroom. Deepe is heavily involved in the school district's drama program and was acknowledged for teaching her students how to embrace and appreciate their true abilities. At the end of the school year, she writes a poem for each of her outgoing students. For her dedication to teaching, Deepe was given $1,000.
