Stacey’s daughters, family, friends, and even former students surprised her at the assembly this afternoon.  She was nominated for this award by her current and former students. Cochran shared, “I have a lot of support in my classroom and among all the teachers. We have a collaborative effort here at Southeast Polk, all of us deserve this award.”
