Correa earned a framed certificate, a gift card and an award.

"It feels awesome; I'm so excited for the kids," said Correa, who is on maternity leave but stopped in for the announcement. "I didn't realize it was such a big achievement until I came here today."

Correa credited her students’ efforts.

"(It was) just me motivating the kids and the kids doing their part at home and coming back with their minutes for us to log in," she said.

Brooklyn Peterson, 11, said she couldn't count all the books she read.

"There is too many to count," she said, adding she reads about four hours after school.

"They are just reading all of the time," Principal Wanda Avery said. "I am very proud of them for reading because I am an avid reader, and … one thing I stress to all of our students is to read, read, read."
