A Wichita teacher has been given a prestigious national award.

Shelly Hoffman was named the National Physical Education Teacher of the year from the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.

 Hoffman is the physical education teacher at Franklin Elementary school.

"I love teaching and I love working with the kids. I have the greatest job." says Hoffman.

Hoffman also promotes the importance of physical activity outside of the classroom.

Hoffman was given the award at a banquet last weekend in St. Louis.
