Columbia, SC (WLTX)- For the last 8 years Kylie Skotniski has taken her place at the front of the classroom to make sure every student is equipped with the tools they need to be successful.

Her teaching style is as laid back and relaxed as the comfortable chairs and floor cushions that cover her first grade classroom at Harbison West Elementary School in Lexington Richland District 5.

Skotniski says that she's known since she was a kindergarten student that she was born to be a teacher.

Her principal, Arthur Newton describes her as a great team member whose energy transfers to her students.

In addition to being an award winning teacher, she is now preparing to become a parent.

If you know someone who deserves to be recognized as a WLTX Teacher of the Week please submit a nomination form.
