KANSAS CITY, MO — Each year, teachers across the country spend $1.6B out of their own pockets to support their classrooms. While the national average teacher salary is just $47,000, this can take a lot out of a teacher's income. Spencer Hardwick of Teach for America Kansas City joins us to talk about their Shark Tank: Teacher Edition event tomorrow, where teachers will be pitching ideas for projects to improve their classrooms, schools and community. Our own Gary Lezak, 41 Action News Chief Meteorologist, will be one of the hosts of the event.
