Grammy Foundation honors Caddo Parish teacher

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The Recording Academy and the Grammy Foundation honored a Caddo Middle Magnet teacher Monday.

Krista Fanning was recognized as a Music Educator Award Finalist.

The award recognizes current educators who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of music education.

"I just want my students to love music as much as I do. To use it throughout their lives. What they're learning in music. We learn so much about ourselves. To have someone say 'you deserve an honor like this' is just really exciting. It's quite overwhelming. I'm not used to talk about what I do, I just like to do what I do," says Fanning.

The Grammy Foundation presented Fanning with a $1,000 check and Caddo Middle Magnet also got a matching $1,000 grant.
