(KSL News) Math class doesn't drum up fond memories for many people. But one West Jordan high schooler says going to his Advanced Placement Calculus class is like getting a group hug every day.

That's why his teacher deserves a High 5. Andrew Gerber nominated teacher Kohnie Jensen on behalf of his class.

To prepare for their big test taking place this week, Gerber says Jensen often starts her day at 6:30 in the morning and doesn't leave until 9:00 at night.

"Ms. Jensen, you're just an awesome teacher," Gerber said. "Sometimes you're here until like 9:00, and always pushing us to succeed. I just thought, well, we all wanted to thank you."

Jensen said, "Some days are better than other, as with any job. But I love the kids."

As a thank you for her work, Kohnie Jensen received a gift certificate to Rodizio Grill.
