SAPPINGTON, MO (KPLR)-Kindergarten marks the official start of children entering a traditional learning environment.  Often overlooked are the teachers who establish a desire for learning before a child starts kindergarten.  And that is why we are honoring, Christie Perkins with our Tools for Teachers award this month.  She has been teaching pre-schoolers at Sappington Child Care Center for almost 35 years.  She will receive $500 today from Weber Chevrolet.
