LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) A Lexington teacher received a special recognition this week.

Laura Joyner, the Latin teacher at Lylburn Downing Middle School, was selected as the Classical Association of Virginia’s Teacher of the Year. It’s an award that comes from being nominated by students and their parents.

“Just the way that she helps the students use different ways of teaching and teaching in different ways is just part of the day to day way she makes class special,” seventh grader Gabi Eastwood said.

Joyner teaches students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades.
