Kay Law, third grade teacher in the Highly Capable program at Ridgecrest Elementary School, was honored as the November 27 Shoreline School District recipient of the Heroes in the Classroom award sponsored by the Seattle Seahawks and Symetra Financial.

Kay was surprised with the award at an all-school assembly at Ridgecrest.

Symetra Heroes in the Classroom is a community program that recognizes Shoreline, Renton and Seattle teachers for outstanding leadership and instructional skills during the Seattle Seahawks season. Kay is the sixth Shoreline teacher to be honored this season, joining Jennifer Etter (Shorecrest), Therese Russell (Brookside), Anne Marie Culver (Kellogg), Ali Airhart (Syre) and Diana Dillard (Shorewood).

Kay has taught in Shoreline Schools since 1973, most of that time with the Highly Capable program. She began her career at North City, and subsequently taught at Horizon View, Brookside, Sunset, Meridian Park and again at North City before moving to Ridgecrest in 2007.

She was recognized at the Seahawks home game against the Washington Redskins Sunday and received a team jacket, two tickets to the game and on-field passes, and a $350 Office Max gift card for classroom supplies.

Kay was nominated by a group of Ridgecrest parents, who wrote in part: "Mrs. Law has an incredible amount of enthusiasm, knowledge, and passion for teaching. She brings positive energy to the classroom that is contagious and instills a love for learning. She is able to understand students' academic strengths and weaknesses and tailor each students learning accordingly."

In addition to the awards before each home game, Symetra and the Seahawks will make a $10,000 donation to three participating schools following the 2011 season. Funds will be designated to support a specific student achievement program at each school.
