Rhode Island's 2018 teacher of the year was revealed Thursday.

Kristin Hayes-Leite has taught social studies for 16 years at Narragansett High School.

She was surprised during a school assembly. Faculty members and students were led to believe the gathering was for the school's new $1 million Agriscience Center.

Gov. Gina Raimondo, Education Commissioner Ken Wagner, Narragansett school administrators and last year's teacher of the year were on hand to bestow the honor.

According to a news release, the Rhode Island Teacher of the Year will work with the Rhode Island Department of Education throughout the 2017-18 school year to develop thoughtful policy, lead professional development, and help support education statewide.
