(KPLR)- Our Tools for Teachers program presented by Weber Chevrolet features many extraordinary teachers throughout the Metro area.

Kyle Gordon is today's Tools for Teachers Recipient. Mr. Gordon teaches Social Studies & Leadership at Collinsville High School.

He was nominated by his student, Kelsie Jeffries.

Here's how Kelsie describes her advisor.

"Mr. Gordon is one of the most dedicated teachers I have ever had.  He teaches social studies and leadership at Collinsville High School.  Most importantly, he is my Student Council Advisor at Collinsville.  We have over four hundred members on our council, the largest in the nation.  This is because of his devotion to the council and the students that make it up.  Mr. Gordon devotes countless hours every day to improving our student council, school, and community.  He makes sure that everyone has a voice and is included in council activities.  Mr. Gordon is a great role model, leader, and teacher. He leads with care and passion.  He holds true to his word and never stops giving of himself.  He will fight for us until the end and will always make sure we have access to the best of what the world can provide to us as students.  Mr. Gordon is the heart of Collinsville High School. He truly makes us the high school of champions."

Kyle Gordon received $500.00 from Weber Chevrolet and two tickets to the Science Center, for the students in his class.
