BGSU grad featured on “Kelly and Michael”

Posted: Updated:
A BGSU grad shared her story on national television Thursday. Stacie Starr is now a teacher and track coach at Elyria High School.

She works as an intervention specialist, helping any kids who are struggling to pass their classes. Starr was featured on “Live with Kelly and Michael” as a part of their “Top Teacher Week.”

"I absolutely love my job and what I do,” she said. “It’s not a job to me. It's my life. I love being here with the kids. I spend most of my day here, with the students, with the athletes, teachers. I work with the best staff."

On the show, Kelly and Michael had several surprises for Starr. In addition to the Top Teacher award, they gave her a trip to the Bahamas, and they gave her high school a new score board.
