A local teacher has received a big honor.
Katherine Schack is the math content leader for the Wentzville School District. She's won the Presidential Award for Excellence in mathematics and science teaching.
The award is the highest recognition that an elementary math or science teacher can receive in the U.S.
Schack taught second grade at Lakeview Elementary before being promoted in 2014.
She will receive $10,000 from the National Science Foundation and has been invited to Washington for an awards ceremony.
