Tera Dent has, one way or another, always been a cheerleader.
For four years, it was on the sidelines at Warner University, where she was getting her elementary education degree.
Today, it's as Hillcrest Elementary's "K Academy" Director, working to support the academic needs of struggling students who were retained along with incoming students who are academically ahead of their peers, work that led to her being named the school's 2018-19 Teacher of the Year.
"I love that kindergartners are like little sponges and want to learn everything," she said.
She's been part of the Lake Wales Chart...
