Lindsey Townsend was recognized earlier this year as a Tennessee Lottery Educator of the Week by WREG, and now, she's getting statewide recognition as this month's statewide Tennessee Lottery Educator of the Month.
It's believed to be the first time a teacher from the metro Memphis area has received the honor.
She's a preschool teacher at Donelson Elementary School in Arlington. Parents say their kids are excited to go back to school every Monday morning. Townsend says what she likes most about teaching is seeing her students fall in love with learning and school.
