PHOENIX -- It takes a special person to be a teacher and at 3TV we know that teacher throughout Arizona and across the country continually give of their time, love and energy to the kids that they teach. That's way, for over 25 years we have been dedicated to recognizing them for their dedication to our future leaders.

Ms. Shirk, from Canyon Springs Elementary, in Anthem is the first 2013-2014 recipient of the 3TV Silver Apple Award for excellence in teaching. Nominated by her student, TJ, Ms. Shirk challenges her students to think about learning in fun ways and encourages them to never give up.

TJ's parents, Leticia & Tad, are so thankful to have Ms. Shirk as part of TJ's life and say they have definitely seen a difference in his overall enthusiasm towards school since being in Ms. Shirk's class.
