Roanoke County teacher honored for being "Best of the Best"

A Roanoke County teacher is honored as one of the 'Best of the Best' by the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Melissa Carr teaches science at William Byrd High School.

A student Carr taught 4 years ago nominated her for the award.

He says Carr inspired him to pursue a career in engineering.

"You always get surprised when your hear from kids because you didn't realize they thought so much about you until you get something like that in the mail," Roanoke County teacher Melissa Carr says.

Carr is traveling to New York in April for the award ceremony.
