Students bring Louisiana teacher of the year to tears with their letters

In our series, A More Perfect Union, we introduce you to Louisiana's teacher of the year, Kimberly Eckert. She teaches English at Brusly High School. Over the course of her decade-long career, she's started a unique tradition where she writes personal letters to her students to ease some of their anxieties and let them know how much they mean to her. We met some of Eckert's past and present students who wanted to return the favor.
