Sandersville teacher wins "My Teacher is Tops"

Sandersville teacher wins "My Teacher is Tops"

4th grade math and science teacher Tiffany Prince of Ridge Road Elementary School in Sandersville is this week's "My Teacher is Tops" winner.

Her student wrote 13WMAZ a letter three months ago. Ms. Prince was so proud that she saved a copy. But they were both caught off guard Wednesday morning when junior journalist Malik Bryant surprised them with the news.

The letter says Ms. Prince "is a smart and loving teacher" and "as pretty as a butterfly."
