Panama City Beach-- It's been dubbed the Oscar of teaching, and a Bay County teacher is the Oscar winner!

Anna Catherine Hull was honored with a $25,000 Milken Educator award during an event hailed as the "Oscars of Teaching" in Santa Monica, California Saturday night.

In November, Hull was surprised by the Milken Foundation at a school-wide assembly. Hull is being recognized for her efforts in showing her fourth and fifth graders the world from their classroom at Patronis Elementary. For example, through internet video chats, her students connect with soldiers in Iraq.

The Milken Family Foundation presents the award to one, sometimes two unsuspecting educators in every state each year. Since it was founded in 1982, the California-based foundation has given more than $62 million to educators across the nation to recognize their contributions to education. This year, 53 teachers received the award.
