BILLINGS - A kindergarten teacher at Lockwood Primary School was shocked Friday morning when KULR-8 News presented her with the April Gold Star Award.

Mrs. Whitney DiFronzo was nominated by one of her student's parents. The parent says her son has become more responsible because of Mrs. DiFronzo's gentle guidance and communication skills with the students.

"I just hope they love to learn. I hope that they feel successful. And I hope that they just always love learning and feel good about learning, and always want to challenge themselves to do better and better," says DiFronzo.

With the award money, Mrs. DiFronzo plans to buy more books and math manipulatives for the classroom.
