DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A Dallas teacher is now considered one of the finest in the nation, because The Milken Educator Award goes to just 40 teachers across the nation.

And, this year, one of them is Susan Moreno who is a dual language teacher, of both English and Spanish, at Dallas J.L. Long Middle School. 

Yesterday, students, teachers and staffers filed into the auditorium for what they thought would be a run-of-the-mill assembly. Bur Moreno was called up on stage and given an over-sized check for $25,000 from the Milken Family Foundation.

As part of the ceremony, Moreno heard her colleagues heaping praise on her for her innovation, energy and her impact on her students.

She says she may use some of the money to repay student loans.
