Now that school's out for the summer, we've put Friday's weekly "Teacher of the Week" segment on hold until school is back in session; however, if we were to award one special teacher this week with cupcakes from Sugarjones and flowers from Broadway florists, it would be Angela Hulsey.

Ms. Hulsey is a kindergarten teacher for RPS 205 and according to WREX, an essay that she wrote for O Magazine has earned her a once in a lifetime opportunity- to set sail with Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King.

I've reached out to Ms. Hulsey for additional comments and hopefully we'll get to hear all about her trip to Alaska.

Congratulations once again, Ms. Hulsey, 97ZOK's honorary teacher of the week.

Catch Mandy James on “The Steve Shannon Show with Mandy James” on 97 ZOK from 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Follow her on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
