OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma Teacher of the Year Rebecka Peterson makes a difference in the lives of many students, just as three educators made a difference in Peterson’s life.

Peterson, a math teacher at Union High School in Tulsa, spoke with KFOR about her middle school math and science teacher, Mrs. West, her high school humanities teacher, Mrs. Hutchins, and her college advisor, Dr. Turner – the three individuals who helped shape her life.
