CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A fifth-grade teacher has been named West Virginia's Teacher of the Year for 2019.

The state Education Department said in a news release that Jada Reeves of Bradley Elementary in Mount Hope was presented the award on Thursday. It includes more than $15,000 and the use of a new car.

Reeves said she adores her students and doesn't know of any other profession as inspiring as education. She will be considered for the National Teacher of the Year Award, which will be announced in April.

Gov. Jim Justice, state Superintendent of Schools Steven Paine, the state Board of Education and representatives from Toyota Motor Manufacturing of West Virginia, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, Horace Mann Insurance Solutions, WesBanco and the state lottery presented the award.
