(ABC 6 News) -- This weeks Excellent Educator is a math teacher from Triton High School in Dodge Center.
Kristen Tischer loves her job and she's known teaching was her calling for a long time.
"Yeah, I wanted to be in elementary education, but changed my mind and I decided high school math and i've enjoyed it since I started," says Tischer.
That was eight years ago, she has been with the district for nearly a decade and says her students and co-workers make her job fun.
"They are the reason I am here," says Tischer.
Like many of us math is not an easy subject to learn, but when you have a great teacher, its not only easy, its fun.
"Some days it's a struggle,but they're a good group and they are doing well."
